Midwives care for and support pregnant women, their partners and new babies before, during and after the birth. They monitor the health of the mother, counsel her on health issues and explain the options for delivery of the baby.

Their job also involves reassuring parents, running antenatal and parenting classes, taking care of the mother and baby during labour and birth and giving advice on breast feeding.

Community Nurses

Tel: 01332 258200

District nurses assess, plan and manage the care of sick and disabled patients of all ages in the patient's own home (when housebound), general practices and residential nursing homes and also provide support for their carers.

Individual care is planned, and advice on further help or services is given including health education. Anyone at home can self-refer to this service. They have a close liaison with the Hospital, GPs, the local hospice and other specialised services.

They administer drugs, give injections, dress wounds, take blood samples and give personal care.

The district nurses are in regular contact with the Practice and messages may be left with the Practice Receptionists.
