Many other people work from the practice even though they are actually employed elsewhere. Together we provide a much fuller service just where it is needed
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Iceni Midwifery Team is responsible for the maternity care of pregnant patients and liaises with the GPs as required. A midwife holds an ante-natal clinic in the surgery on Wednesday afternoons and can be contacted on 01366 386232.
The community dietitian based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital conducts a clinic every 4 weeks at the surgery on a Tuesday/Thursday afternoon between 14:00 - 17:00. She does not see patients who are just overweight; they should try to reduce weight through a “weightwatchers” or similar programme. GPs will refer patients who have more complex medical needs coupled with a dietary problem.
Family Action Service
Family Action, formerly the WellFamily service, a national charity, works closely with the practice providing practical, emotional and financial support to individuals and families. Patients can be referred by their GP or refer themselves to Family Action. Telephone 01760 720302.
Community Mental Health Support Worker
The community mental health support worker is based at the Fermoy Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, but conducts limited outreach clinics at the surgery every fortnight for patients referred by their GP.
