The midwives run the antenatal clinic. They also do antenatal and postnatal domiciliary visits. They liaise very closely with other members of the primary health care team.

The district nurses are routinely involved with care of patients in their homes. They assess their needs; they advise on and carry out nursing care for the sick, elderly and terminally ill patients.


The responsibility of our Macmillan nurses is to advise about the care of terminally ill cancer patients. They will liaise with all members of the primary health care team, hospital specialists and hospice organisations.
