The district nurses mostly care for people in their own home. They carry out all types of nursing care including help and support for patients and carers.
The midwives see patients who are pregnant or have recently given birth. The practice offers ante and postnatal care, involving the GPs and an attached community midwife. Postnatal advice and support are offered to mothers and newborn babies by our GP’s, the midwife and the health visitors who are accessible through local Surestart centres.
