Community Nurses

Our Community Nurses visit patients in their own home to provide skilled nursing care and to give advice and support to relatives and carers. They may be contacted by calling the Single Point of Access telephone number 0300 125 6789 .


Our Midwives work with the doctors to provide antenatal and postnatal care for our patients.  It is very important that you contact the practice as soon as you think you are pregnant to make a booking appointment with the midwife.  Weekly antenatal clinics are held at the Primary Care Centre by appointment with the midwife.  Pre-pregnancy information and advice can also be discussed with the midwife.

The midwives can be contacted by 0117 414 5160.

Community Link Workers (Social Prescribing)

Social prescribing is a way for local agencies to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Link workers also support existing community groups to be accessible and sustainable, and help people to start new groups, working collaboratively with all local partners.

Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

When social prescribing works well, people can be easily referred to link workers from a wide range of local agencies, including general practice, pharmacies, multi-disciplinary teams, hospital discharge teams, allied health professionals, fire service, police, job centres, social care services, housing associations and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
