Maternity Care is Midwife-led
Maternity care is now fully midwife-led. This means all of your routine pregnancy care will be delivered by your midwife. If you have a non-pregnancy related health concern, please contact the surgery in the usual way.
Although your routine maternity care will be midwife-led, it’s important we are aware that you are pregnant. If you are pregnant, please send us a message via the website to let us know, along with your expected due date so we can ensure our records are updated.
