Community Midwives

Midwives are allocated to the Practice by Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. They arrange booking to the hospital of choice for delivery, carry out the majority of antenatal care at the surgeries and visit patients at home after their baby has been born. Patients are invited to bring their baby to the surgery for an appointment with a GP when they are 10 days old for a baby check.

They are able to visit the housebound and people with palliative care needs to offer a range of nursing care when this is needed.
