The nursing team provide preventative care and monitoring and management of long term conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, COPD, asthma.

You can request a nursing appointment for any of the following:

Our Healthcare Assistants offer preventative care with:

  • monitoring long-term conditions
  • NHS health checks
  • blood pressure checks
  • removal of stitches (sutures) and staples
  • ECG (electrocardiogram) tests
  • weight management/dietary advice
  • smoking cessation advice

If you feel you need a nursing appointment, please contact us.

We also work very closely with our community teams of midwives, health visitors and district nurses:

The midwives provide antenatal clinics at a variety of sites in the local area. They monitor progress and offer help and advice on all aspects of pregnancy, delivery and postnatal care.

If you are pregnant, please self-refer for maternity care online.

After you submit this form, the hospital will review your information and contact you to arrange your antenatal care.  The maternity service will notify us that you are pregnant. There is no need for you to contact us unless you are worried about the pregnancy.
