Community Midwives

Cathy Aldridge

Our midwife and most of the doctors hold antenatal clinics. If you know that you are pregnant it is not necessary to see a doctor. Just book a first antenatal appointment with the midwife. The midwives also give pre - conceptual care and advice and hold parent craft classes. The midwives offer a home delivery service if appropriate and they also visit you during the postnatal period after you have had the baby.

Community Nurses

This team offers comprehensive care in the home allowing the very ill to remain at home when preferred. It works with other nursing agencies such as Hospice at Home / Marie Curie, Macmillan and out of hour’s teams.

The team is dedicated to providing the best care at home when it is needed, but travelling takes up time we would rather spend with patients. For this reason we only make home visits when patients are too ill to come to surgery.
