Nicole our Reception Manager is responsible for organising all Post Natal Checks for mum and baby. When we receive notification of your babies birth we will invite you both in for an appointments; 20 minute for a review of your baby and 10 minutes for a review of the mother.
Some newborn babies are released from hospital without a detailed examination. If this is the case, our GPs are happy to perform the relevant checks, either in the surgery, or in comfort of your own home, depending on which is easier for you.
In most cases, the Practice will contact new mums to arrange for this to happen, on rare occasions where we are unaware of the birth, please feel free to give us a call and arrange an appointment or visit.
