Midwives

Midwives work with the doctors at the practice to provide antenatal and postnatal care to patients.  Antenatal clinics are held at the surgery, except for Essex patients whose midwives make separate arrangements.  Messages for midwives can be left with the receptionists or you can contact them on 01438 284533. The midwives hold regular antenatal clinics at the surgery and doctors see patients for antenatal care during their surgeries.
