Community Midwives

The Community Midwives are able to offer full care during pregnancy. The doctors and midwife share the care of the expectant mother.

Your initial consultation with the midwife will usually take place in your home. You will be asked a few questions and the midwife will carry out some general health checks, and will arrange your hospital booking. Throughout your pregnancy will be seen regularly either at the practice or at the local hospital, or both.

There is a weekly Midwife Clinic held at Hillsprings Surgery every Thursday from 9:00am-12:00 noon, by appointment only.

There is an additional leaflet about our ante-natal services available upon request at each Practice Reception.

Community Nurses

The District Nurses are available to see you in your home and help with dressings and removal of sutures, advice and care of the acutely and chronically sick and terminally ill and advice on incontinence, supplying pads and other aids.

Health Visitors

All Health Visitors are qualified nurses and many of them have had midwifery training. They also have a further year’s training in subjects such as Child Development, family structure, community health, the promotion of health in all age groups and psychology.

They work mainly with parents and young children and will visit you soon after you return home with your new baby. They may also visit you during your pregnancy and they work alongside the midwives.

They run Child Health Clinics at the Sandy Lane Health Centre premises and work in conjunction with the GP’s in the surgery. They may also prescribe medication for certain minor ailments.

They also work with elderly people, children with special needs and with other age groups, advising them on how to achieve good physical and emotional health.

The Health Visitors set up support groups and provide support in times of stress, anxiety and illness. All this work is kept in strict confidence.

Horsefair Practice Group will continue to provide advice & treatment for any medical concerns.

There have been some changes made to the delivery of care to protect staff and patients during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  However our services are accessible as they have always been, so please contact us to book an appropriate appointment and do not ignore worrying symptoms that maybe early signs of more serious conditions like cancer.

Access to our clinicians has been enhanced due to Covid-19.  We offer Video Consultations, Telephone Consultations and where appropriate a face to face consultation.

Please note we will provide face to face GP or Nurse appointments where advised by a Clinician.  The receptionist will arrange a telephone or video consultation for you in accordance with national guidance in order that the Clinician can assess your condition or problem, offering a face to face consultation as appropriate.

You can also book appointments online. To do this you will need to register online at

https://patient.info/patient -access

If you already order your prescription on line then you don’t need to re-register, simply update your profile to include booking online appointments.  Please remember we are still here to provide advice & treatment  for any medical concerns.  If you need to be seen face to face we can arrange this after speaking to one of our clinicians.

Please do not ignore worrying symptoms that maybe early signs of a more serious condition.

Please also note that because we are consulting patients more by telephone it may take longer to speak to us when booking an appointment by phone. Please be patient, alternatively please book on line.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ****Please note that to prevent further transmission and infection from the COVID-19 virus we ask from 15th June all patients entering the surgery will be required to wear a face mask or face covering.
