Community midwives are attached to the practice. They will share your maternity care with the doctor and will arrange relaxation classes and visits for mothers at home during pregnancy and confinement.
District nurses can give nursing care to patients confined to their homes. Arrangements can be made through the Health Centre if appropriate. Please call the health centre (01548) 830666.
Health Visitors play a crucial role in giving newborn children the best start in life, and support their families in being able to deliver this.
We help families during those early years of a child’s life, which can have a profound impact on the lifelong health and wellbeing of young children and their families.
We also lead on the delivery of the early years elements of the Healthy Child Programme in partnership with other multidisciplinary services.
Please see here for more information on Health Visiting.
This may include:
- Emotional and mental health
- Adopting a healthy lifestyle
- Relationship difficulties
- Domestic abuse
- Support with housing and financial concerns
We can support you with any concerns in regard to your child’s behaviour and development. To do this we offer phone support and face to face contact in settings in the community or in your home.
We provide child and family health services through delivery of the Healthy Child Programme. This includes:
- an antenatal contact after 28 weeks for the parent(s) to be.
- a new birth visit to the Parent(s)/Carer(s) and new baby by 14 days postnatal
- a review at 6-8 weeks
- developmental reviews by 1 year and 2 and a half years of age
All points of contact will allow for a review of any family health concerns and work with you to plan how additional support can be accessed if required
