Doctor's surgeries take place at the following times:
In every surgery some appointments can be booked up to two weeks in advance and some become available on the day for people who need to see a doctor the same day. We ask that you be considerate in your use of the system by booking ahead as much as possible so that you leave the appointments on the day for when people become suddenly ill and need more urgent attention.
Every surgery also has some telephone consultation appointments and you can arrange at reception for a doctor to ring you back either in the morning or the evening. The doctor cannot give a specific time as this will depend on face to face consultations on the day, but please make sure you are by a working phone to receive the call so that you don't miss it.
Our nurses have appointments available throughout the week.
Each of our nurses has a different set of skills and it is important that you let the reception staff know what you are coming to see the nurse about when you book the appointment, so that we make sure you are booked in with the appropriate person.
There is a midwife led antenatal clinic held at the surgery every Friday morning.
This saves a trip up to the hospital for every appointment. These are the same midwives that the mums-to-be will meet when they actually have their baby at Arrowe Park, but they also see mums-to-be who choose to have their baby at The Women's or other hospitals.
Don't forget an annual flu vaccine is now recommended for pregnant mums in Autumn, and after 16 weeks of pregnancy pregnant mums also need a whooping cough vaccine booster. This is to stop very little babies getting whooping cough and flu.
The mum's immune system can protect the baby against both these serious diseases for the first weeks, until baby's own immune system is more fully developed and he or she can have their own vaccinations.
