If you discover you are pregnant, you can self-refer to the local antenatal clinics. Please check on the hospital websites or ask reception for self-referral forms.

Please book a six-week check for mother and baby with reception.
A clinic is run by the health visitor every fortnight between 14:00 – 15:30.
You will have an opportunity to discuss feeding issues and your baby can be weighed.
Please do not bring acutely ill babies to this clinic. Children's immunisations are given by the practice nurse.
