Clinics & Services
We run a range of clinics. For an appointment or further details, please ask at reception or ring the health centre.
These clinics are run by the midwives. If you become pregnant, you will be given a ‘booking appointment’ at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy, either at the practice or at the local hospital, or both.
