Community matrons, district nurses, health visitors, midwives and a community psychiatric nurse work with the practice providing care for our patients.
The district nurses visit those patients in need of nursing care who are too infirm to attend the surgery. Parents, carers and relatives can contact the OneCall on 0845 0920 414 to request a visit.
The health visitor is a fully qualified nurse who has had extra training in caring for people in the community. She will assume care of new mothers and infants when the baby has reached 10 days old as well as offering support, advice and information about feeding and also general health and safety of the family. She will also visit other families with children five years and under. The team run baby clinics, parenting groups and baby massage classes. As well as the health visitor, there is a qualified nursery nurse, who is able to offer support and advice on child development. Telephone: (01293) 600300 ext 3230.
The midwife is qualified to give advice and look after you during pregnancy, labour and after the birth (for 10 days). You will see the midwife for a booking appointment at Crawley Hospital (ring (01293) 600338 to book appointment), where your health and pregnancy will be discussed and a risk assessment completed. Follow-up care will be arranged at the surgery or at a consultant clinic at Crawley if you are high risk.
The midwife runs an antenatal clinic at the surgery on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings. You need to ring the surgery to make appointments.
The midwife will arrange and take antenatal classes to prepare you for the birth and afterwards. She can be contacted between 8.30 - 9.30am by ringing Crawley Hospital on (01293) 600300, ext. 3631, or leave a non-urgent answer phone message after 9.30am.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travelto allow the vaccines to work.
