The Primary Health Care Team

DISTRICT NURSES

We have a skilled District Nursing team who provide care to patients who are too ill or infirm to come to the surgery.

Our District Nurses are frequently involved in the care of patients following discharge from hospital. They are also involved in the management of chronic conditions such as
diabetes.

A continence clinic has recently been set up by the district nurses at the Health Centre with the help of one of the physiotherapists. We now also have a leg ulcer clinic

The Distrcit Nurses can be contacted via the Health Centre reception on 01246 733241.

HEALTH VISITORS

We have a team of three health visitors who provide advice and support for mothers while monitoring the growth and development of babies and children.
They will also give advice on immunisations and behavioural and feeding problems.
At the teenage health clinic teenagers can discuss a whole host of issues from sexual health to drug and alcohol problems.



MIDWIFE

Our midwife provides the majority of routine ante-natal care for pregnant ladies. Expectant mothers can chose between the Jessop's Hospital in Sheffield or Chesterfield Royal Hospital if they wish a hospital confinement. Patients wishing a home confinement should seek the advice of the midwife.
There is a weekly ante-natal clinic in the Health Centre.
