We will provide full antenatal and postnatal care, operating a “shared care” system with the community midwife and our local maternity unit at Watford Hospital. We also advise on pre-conception care.
District nurses will visit housebound patients who are unable to visit the surgery. This can be arranged through your doctor or by the hospital. The district nurse also holds a clinic at Skidmore Way for dressings, removal of sutures and post operative wound care.

They run a well child clinic in conjunction with a doctor or nurse for child development checks, baby weighing and to offer support with any child health concerns.The health visitors can be contacted on 01923 284034.
