Clinics & Services
The Midwife antenatal clinics are run on a Thursday. The doctors also offer a high level of care to our pregnant patients by providing antenatal care alongside the Community Midwifery Team.
Our Care Coordinator, Sarah Rogers, works with patients over the age of 18 years who have a long term condition e.g. MS, COPD, Stroke and Parkinsons. They can advice and support patients with social/community/care issues and help to liaise multi agency. If you would like to speak to the care coordinator please contact Reception.
Checks on your child's growth and development and immunisations are carried out by a doctor and Health Visitor. You will be invited to attend a 6 week developmental check and we will let you know when further checks are due.
The Health Visitors are based at St Oswald's Hospital and are contactable on 01335 230 000, option 5.
