Community Midwives

Our practice midwife is Brenda McCabe who works with a team of community midwives. The community midwives provide antenatal care for patients together with the doctors at antenatal clinics at the surgery. The midwife can help you with all aspects of care during your pregnancy and to care for mother and baby for the first 10 days or longer if necessary after birth care is then transferred to the health visitor.

Community Nurses

District Sister Pricilla Fawcett is our named nurse within the practice, supported by other members of the community nursing team. They provide skilled nursing care in the patient’s own home and advise carers. Nursing care at home can include care of the terminally ill, disabled, acutely ill and post-operative care. If you thin you, or a member of your family needs a nursing assessment, you can contact the district nurse through your doctor.

Health Visitors

Our practice health visitor is Margaret Barton who works with a team of health visitors. The health visitors are nurses with qualifications in nursing and midwifery and who have very special training to give health advice and support on matters relating to family and health. The health visitors are practice attached and visit all families with pre-school children. They work with the doctors in the running of the practice’s baby clinics, visit the non-attendees, carry out screening and developmental tests and promote and participate in the immunisation programme.
