Community Midwives

If you think you might be pregnant, please see us as soon as possible. We work in co-operation with the Community Midwives and hold antenatal clinics every week.

During these clinics, post-natal checks combined with babies’ 8-week developmental checks and first immunisations are also performed. We usually send you an appointment to attend with your baby for this combined check.

Clinic times:

  • Bearpark Medical Centre 
    Wednesday   
  • Gilesgate Medical Centre 
    Wednesday  
  • Framwellgate Moor Centre 
    Initial appointments every other Wednesday, follow up appointments on Fridays

Please make an appointment to see your midwife via the Receptionist.
