STAFF ATTACHED TO THE PRACTICE
We have District Nurses attached to Pound Hill and to Copthorne. The team provides care and support to the sick and their relatives at home and on occasions at the surgery. Referrals can be accepted from patients and carers as well as other professionals.
The district nurses can be contacted via One Call at Crawley Hospital 01293 600 300.
Health Visitors are 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.
The practice regularly has nursing students attached to the team.
