Heath Visitors

The surgery is supported by a team of health visitors, who provide a range of services in support of family health.  This often revolves around the needs of children, and support for parents, but covers a wide range of family health matters.


The surgery is supported by a team of midwives, who care for patients during pregnancy and in labour.  A leaflet describing antenatal services and the care available can be obtained by ringing the midwifery team.
