The team currently consists of a social worker, family support workers and health visitors.

They can also give advice and help if you are looking after a friend or relative including loaning nursing equipment if necessary. They usually visit between 8.30 am and 4pm. A reduced service is available at evenings and weekends.

Community Midwives

Along with the doctors and health visitors, the community midwives offer a full antenatal service including antenatal classes, shared care with the hospital, midwife-led deliveries in the hospital and at home.
