Community Midwives

We have visiting midwives to do our ante-natal clinics and post-natal home visits.

Community Nurses

We have an experienced team or district nurses attached to the practice, whose role includes patients of any age, where necessary at home, to give practical nursing assistance and to offer professional advice.

A lead nurse carefully assesses the needs of each patient referred to them and his or her care and treatment is planned and agreed with the patient.

Some of our district nurses are qualified to prescribe topical treatments and dressings.

The district nurses work with our practice nurses to treat leg ulcers and do some immunisations and blood tests, especially for the elderly and housebound.

Health Visitors

The health visitors are primarily responsible for monitoring the health and welfare of children registered with us, before they start school. They assist at our weekly Baby Clinic and hold support and screening clinics of their own.

The health visitors also have a role helping us provide health education to our patients, and assist us in monitoring the health and welfare of our elderly patients and those with disabilities.

Attached Staff

Chiropody

Chiropody clinics for patients living in Oldbury and Smethwick are held at the premises on a daily basis. Appointments for these clinics are not, however, made at our reception but at a central Primary Care Trust office.

Eligible patients (e.g. patients over 65, diabetics and patients with severe arthritis) who wish to see the chiropodist will need a referral from the doctor or the nurses.
