Post Operative Wound Care
We provide a post-operative care service for registered and temporarily registered patients who need to have sutures removed and general wound care following a hospital day case or inpatient procedure
Appointments for this clinics can only be made at the request of the doctor or nurse. You will usually be asked to report to the receptionist and advice her that you have been asked to make the relevant appointment. An appointment date and time will then be sent to you. If the given appointment is inconvenient for you then please phone the surgery and rearrange it.
Appointment with the Surgery counsellor
An appointment with the surgery counsellor can only be made at the request of the doctor or nurse. A written referral, by the doctor or nurse, has to be made to the counsellor who will then acknowledge receipt of the referral and subsequently send you an appointment.
Midwife (ante-natal care)
A Midwife is a nurse who is trained to care for expectant mothers and their new born babies. Generally a Midwife will look after a pregnant woman from the time they have been booked for their ante-natal care until 10 days after the birth of the baby. They will provide most of the care during your pregnancy.
Our ante-natal clinics are run on a Monday & Wednesday.
Health visitors are nurses who have had additional training to care for the family. Traditionally they have looked after the needs of mothers from 10 days after the birth, a point at which the Midwife relinquishes care. They are also the first port of call if you have any concerns about your child. Again, traditionally, they will remain involved in the care of your child until he/she is 5 years old. There is a drop in session at Castlecombe Children & Family Centre Mottingham Thurs am 9.30-11.30 and Cotmandene Children & Family Centre Friday am 9.30-11.30
Health Visitors for the Elderly
Health Visitors also care for the needs of Elderly people and are always willing to attend an elderly person by appointment to discuss any special needs that they may have.Contact the Health Visitors on: 020 8857 6028.
If the doctor or nurse has asked you to have a blood test then you are required to attend one of the local phlebotomy services. We regret that the surgery can not make appointment for patients to have their blood taken at the surgery. We do sometimes make exceptions for the elderly.
