Community Midwives

Two midwives (employed by John Radcliffe hospital/Oxfordshire Health) are in Faringdon on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. A midwife will contact you to arrange a first appointment at about 10/12 weeks and explain what will happen. At this time you can elect to go to Oxford, Swindon or Wantage (unless it's a 1st child) for delivery. To register your pregnancy and arrange your initial appointment with the midwife, you will need an appointment with a GP. 

Community Nurses

District nurses help the housebound to keep well and help avoid return or admission to hospital. They carry out blood checks, change dressings, administer morphine, deal with catheters and care for those nearing the end of their life. If you need this service you will need to be referred so please contact the practice to speak to a GP.

They are employed by Oxford Health.
