Our Services

Maternity Care

Please see your own Doctor. After referral, the midwife team will undertake all routine maternity care. All the Doctors in the Practice are trained to provide antenatal and postnatal care to our pregnant patients. However, they are not skilled in the actual management of labour. For this reason, the Midwife holds responsibility for homebirths. In the event of an emergency, the Midwife will refer direct to the hospital. Where necessary, the Doctors will provide emergency assistance within the limits of their own expertise.
 
 

Family Planning

All doctors are available for family planning advice during normal surgeries, please request a double appointment.
