Attached Staff (Health Visitors, District Nurses, Midwives)

In addition to practice nurses, the practice has access to the services of health visitors, district nurses, district midwives and community matrons.

Health visitors advise on various health matters including the care and development of children under five and health during pregnancy. They are highly trained nurses who specialise in health promotion, the needs of the young, adolescent and the elderly.

District nurses visit people in their homes who are unable to come to the surgery. They provide an assessment of the nursing services required and initiate appropriate nursing care.

Midwives provide antenatal care at our clinic, advice on all pregnancy related issues and a comprehensive postnatal service for you and your baby.

Palliative care nurses (Macmillan/home care sisters) provide advice and specialist care for terminally ill patients and their families. Support is provided both in the home, in the local hospice or in the practice.

GP Training

The practice is committed to the further training of doctors who, already experienced in hospital medicine, wish to make the career in general practice. A notice will be displayed in the practice advising you of the trainee doctor's name and we hope that you will support our training programme.
