STAFF ATTACHED TO THE PRACTICE
We have a District Nurse Team employed by the Primary Care Trust that provides specialist care and support to patients (and their carers) registered with the Pound Hill Medical Group.
Care may be provided at home, in the surgery or other location as deemed appropriate. Referrals are welcomed from patients, their carers and other professionals
The team can be contacted via One Call at Crawley Hospital, 01293 600 300.
Health Visitors are also attached to Pound Hill and Copthorne. They are specially qualified nurses who give advice, support and counselling on a wide range of health issues and are involved particularly in the care of children and their parents, the elderly and handicapped. The health visitors hold child health clinics at both surgeries.
They can be contacted on 01293 651 733.

Our Community Midwife looks after mothers during the whole of their maternity period from antenatal care and parentcraft classes through to the baby’s birth and postnatal care. She also holds a “first booking” antenatal clinic on Monday and Wednesday afternoons for those patients who have recently had a pregnancy confirmed.
