Community Midwives

Our maternity services within the practice are mainly undertaken by our team of very experienced midwives, based at Wigan hospital. The midwives provide full antenatal cover with weekly clinics at the surgery.

In-patient maternity care is usually provided at Wigan Infirmary.

Post natal care is provided at home by the same team of midwives who looked after you during your pregnancy, thus ensuring good continuity of care throughout the ante-natal and post-natal period.

Community Nurses

District Nurse Teams offer a range of treatments to palliative care patients, housebound patients and those recently discharged from hospital. District Nurse teams are located at a variety of venues in the borough; they are not located at our GP practice.  If you require the contact details of a District Nurse team near you please contact reception. 

If you require stitch/staple removal, dressings or ear syringing please contact the District Nurse Single Point of Access team on 01942 483483 who will arrange a suitably convenient appointment time.  Please note that our practice nurses do not offer these services.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.
