The midwife is attached to the Practice and is responsible for antenatal and early postnatal care.  She works in close co-operation with the doctors, health visitors and the local maternity units.

The community nursing team provides a wide range of nursing care and support to patients at home who are physically unable to attend the surgery and / or have a serious illness or disability.  Main areas of care include wound care, hospital discharge assessments, palliative and bereavement care, cancer care and support and continence care and advice.

The community nursing team has an open referral system.  Appropriateness of referrals would be assessed via telephone prior to a home visit.  The team can be contacted Monday to Friday 08.30 – 5pm on 01202 738812.  Please note there is no answer machine.  Messages can be left via the reception staff on the main surgery number.

Health Visitors

At Rosemary Medical Centre the Health Visitors run a baby clinic every Tuesday between 10am and 12 noon.  There is also a sleep clinic on Monday’s between 12 noon and 1pm where patients can access support and advice on sleep problems. Please call for an appointment

The Health Visitors also have a wide range of referral and resource networks on health topics and parenting and behaviour management.
