Community Midwives

Midwives look after women during their pregnancy and help to monitor the health of mum and baby to ensure that the pregnancy is progressing normally.  They also ensure that plans are in place for the delivery and in the early weeks and months that both mum and baby are doing well.  They are also there to support new or inexperienced parents.

Community Nurses

Community Nurses, also known as District Nurses will often take care of patients in their own home along with the GPs.  They provide similar services to the Practice Nurse team, but also specialise in palliative care and dealing with frail, housebound or patients with mobility problems.

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are nurses who specialise in the care of children and their families and in helping these groups to stay healthy.  They will often go out to visit patients in their own homes and are a regularly involved in child protection cases.

 

These teams are not employed by the practice, but work alongside us in co-ordinating patient care.
