The team help to ensure the smooth running of the Practice and are based at Kelvin House Surgery:
Our receptionists help us to run the Practice as smoothly and efficiently as possible. They are, of course, our first contact for you, the Patient – whether you come to the surgery, telephone or write to us.
If you think you might be pregnant, please see us as soon as possible. We work in co-operation with the Community Midwives and hold antenatal clinics every week. During these clinics, post-natal checks combined with babies’ 8-week developmental checks and first immunisations are also performed. We usually send you an appointment to attend with your baby for this combined check.
Please make an appointment to see your midwife via the Receptionist.
