Community Midwives

The midwives provide care and advice to patients during pregnancy and after childbirth. Clinics are held in mother and baby clinics held at the Sure Start Centres. If you think you are pregnant you will need to see the doctor who will refer you to the midwife and the hospital for antenatal care.

Community Nurses

The district nurses provide a wide range of support and services to patients, mainly in their home environment. This may range from visiting patients following discharge from hospital to long-term care for various nursing needs. The district nurses can be contacted directly on 0161 763 8525.

Health Visitors

The health visitors are based at Ings Lane clinic and hold a baby clinic at the surgery on a Monday afternoon between 1.30 and 2.30pm - no appointment is necessary. The health visitors work closely with young families and are available to give advice on the general welfare of young children, infant feeding and weaning. They will, at certain ages, invite children to attend for hearing tests and assessments to promote good health and monitor their development. If you wish to contact the health visitor, please ring 676301/2.
