Community Midwives

A community midwife and her colleagues will see you in the surgery on a Tuesday morning as well as visiting you at home, whilst you should ideally see the same midwife each time this is outside our control. She will provide your antenatal care together with your GP.  The midwives are based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital Tel: 261000 ext 3868  If they are out there is an answer phone to allow you to leave a message and they will get back to you.

Community Nurses

Referrals are accepted from a wide variety of sources including GP's, hospitals, other health care professionals, social services, care agencies, families and patients themselves. They strictly only visit patients who are housebound although this could be due to either a permanent dis­ability or a temporary incapacity i.e. due to an operation.

They offer skilled nursing care for a wide variety of needs including palliative care, chronic illness, post operative, assessment of continence and wound care. If you have a nursing need, are housebound and wish to contact the district nurses please telephone 264090 between the hours of 08:30 and 15:30.
