Adult Immunisation programme

Tetanus and polio immunisation is recommended. If you have never been immunised please contact the surgery to make an appointment to see the nurse. If you are travelling abroad please telephone the surgery and make an appointment with the nurse in order to work out a vaccination programme. This appointment should be made at least two months prior to travelling. Not all vaccinations are available at the surgery but the nurse will be happy to advise.

 pregnant10Antenatal Care

Appointments with the midwife are no longer available at either surgery as all antenatal care is now based at Beckett Children’s Centre, Stockbrook Street, Derby where care for all our patients is now provided. After a positive pregnancy test you will be advised how to contact the centre. 

Postnatal Care

Once the baby has been delivered the mother can expect post-natal care at home from the midwife. At a post-natal appointment when baby is 6 weeks old, the doctor and nurse will check that both mother and baby are doing well. At the same time the child’s immunisation programme will be established. Please remember, if you haven’t already, to bring baby’s registration forms and your red book.
