Community Midwives

The midwife runs antenatal clinics at both surgeries and performs home visits when required and also after the birth of the baby. Whilst she works closely with the GP's, she is based outside of the practice and can be contacted on 0191 282 5119.

If you become pregnant, the first step is to make a routine appointment with your GP. Antenatal clinics: Midwife - Fawdon on Thursday 13:30 - 16:00 and Kingston Park on Wednesday 08:45 - 12:00.
