The midwife holds ante-natal clinics and parentcraft classes. She visits you at home after you have had your baby. She holds regular clinics at the Swallowfield surgery and works closely with the doctors and the Obstetric Department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
There are five district nurses and one HCA based at the Swallowfield surgery. This team provides comprehensive nursing care to the housebound and offers support, advice and education to patients and their carers. They also provide palliative care which, whenever possible, will help patients to remain at home if they wish. To contact the District Nurses you can telephone 0118 9495083.
The health visitors who are attached to the Practice are part of the Wokingham Health Visitor Team based at Wokingham Hospital. They are nurses who specialise in health promotion and the prevention of illness. In particular, they give help, advice and support relating to the health of children and their families.
