Maternity Self-referral - I'm pregnant - what happens next?
The community midwife is responsible for antenatal and early postnatal care. She organises parentcraft classes and home visits. She is available for advice in all aspects of maternity care and you may contact her through reception.
Maternity services are based at the Princess Anne Hospital on Coxford Road, just across the road from Southampton General Hospital. There is also a birthing centre based within the New Forest in Ashurst.
We undertake some minor surgery procedures in the practice. These procedures involve careful assessment, explanation, consent, treatment, and post-operative information. Each of our doctors has their area of special interest and are able to offer a range of different procedures.
We offer a limited travel health clinic at the surgery. Please contact us for more information.
Warfarin is commonly prescribed to patients in order to reduce their chance of a stroke. This is a medication that requires special monitoring and we are able to do this in-house using a finger prick blood test. The clinics are run by our practice nurses and closely monitored by your GP.
