Community Midwives

Derbyshire Community Health Services also employ the community midwives, who are nurses specially trained to care for women throughout normal pregnancy, labour and after the birth. They are involved in all aspects of maternity care, and the name of your midwife will be given when booking your first antenatal session.

 

Community Nurses

Our district nurses are employed by Derbyshire Community Health Services, and cover the surgeries at Darley Dale, Winster and Youlgreave. They work closely as a team with the doctors, and are able to provide treatment at home and advise about convalescence after discharge from hospital.

To contact a district nurse or make an appointment, please ring your usual surgery during surgery hours.

Health Visitors

Our health visitors are employed by Derbyshire Community Health Services, and cover the surgeries at Darley Dale, Winster and Youlgreave. They are nurses specially trained to deal with the health of the whole family - especially children.

Patients will often meet the health visitor before the birth of a baby, and the health visitor also contacts new mothers to arrange a first baby check when a baby is two weeks old. The Health Visitor also arranges childhood immunisations, and is available to give health education and advice.

To contact the health visitor or make an appointment, please ring 01629 734705.
