Our Clinics and Services


Antenatal Care

We offer antenatal care in co-operation with the obstetricians at Kings College Hospital and the community midwives. The midwives are based at Kings College Hospital and no longer hold a clinic at the practice.

The antenatal care is shared between the GP’s and the Midwives and you will see both at various times throughout the pregnancy. The GP’s can offer both routine antenatal care as well as treating any illnesses what might occur whilst you are pregnant. Refer to Antenatal Shared Care Protocol for more information on antenatal appointments.
