Advanced Nurse Practitioners
Community Midwives offer a full range of support from pre-conception to at least one month following the birth of your baby. We also have access to specialist Midwives who provide care for women and families who have drug and alchohol dependancy, teenage pregnancies and domestic abuse issues. They also offer hospital care at the four local hospitals and actively promote home births when safe to do so.

The team of District/Community Staff Nurses provide skilled nursing care to patients in the community who, due to ill health, are unable to access our services in the usual way including patients who are housebound, elderly and terminally ill.
For patients who are able to attend the Health Centre, they offer Treatment Room Sessions for dressings and wound care (including compression bandaging), ear syringing, dopplers (blood circulation assessment), continence assessments, B12 and other injections.
Our Health Visitors are no longer based with us at Castlefields and they are now based at Murdishaw Health Centre, please contact Murdishaw Health Centre (01928 842829) to get in contact. Many thanks.
