Community Midwives

The community midwife, attached but not directly employed by the practice, has been specially trained to care for mothers and babies throughout normal pregnancy, labour and birth. Midwives are involved in giving antenatal care, attending home births and delivering babies in hospital or GP/midwife units.

Your midwife may even accompany you to the hospital. She will continue to look after you and your baby at home until she hands over your care to a health visitor at between 10 and 28 days after the birth of your baby.

Community Nurses

The community nursing team is available to provide nursing care and advice to patients in their homes at the request of hospitals or GPs. Their base is at Scurlage surgery where messages may be left during office hours by telephoning 01792 390413.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a fully qualified nurse who has had extra training in the caring for people in the community. Their role is to help families, especially those with very young children, to keep healthy. The health visitor will visit you at home sometime after your baby is 10 days old and give you information about feeding as well as general health and safety. She will also offer advice and support if you have any problems. You can arrange to see the health visitor at home or at the Well Baby Clinics held in surgery.
