Antenatal clinic

A clinic run under the supervision of the community midwifery team for routine antenatal care. If you are pregnant please speak to us here at the surgery at your earliest convenience to allow us to book you for the midwife. The midwife will subsequently contact you to discuss your antenatal care - this usually occurs after 10-11 weeks of pregnancy. You may also wish to see a doctor in the early stages of your pregnancy for advice regarding matters such as folic acid, diet, smoking and lifestyle.

It is currently recommended that all women aged between 20 and 65 years attend for a cervical smear every 3 years. The service and recall is co-ordinated by the Cervical Screening Wales (CSW) service. If you have any anxieties about attending for your routine smear please do not hesitate to discuss this with us here at the surgery.
