Clinics & Services
The community midwife is based in our practice building and has regular clinics to book patients for care and to perform regular antenatal care. We recommend that you book with the midwife as early as possible in your pregnancy. She will check your bloods and arrange your scans which usually take place at 12 and 20 weeks of pregnancy. Ring our reception on 01287 650430 to make an appointment with the midwife. Click here for more information about pregnancy.
We support the local cervical smear screening programme and recommend that all women between the ages of 25-65 attend for screening. This test can be performed by our practice nurse, or at a local family planning clinic.
Who is eligible for cervical screening? Read more here.

We strongly advise immunisation for all children. If in doubt, please ask your health visitor or doctor about this.
