Clinic Details
Antenatal / Maternity We offer shared care (your doctor and the hospital) during your pregnancy. Most expectant mothers have their antenatal checks with the midwife who is based at South Lodge in Worthing. A doctor is available if required. Postnatal checks are necessary 6 weeks after the birth and you should book an appointment with the doctor for this.
Asthma / Respiratory It is recommended patients with Asthma are seen annually in our clinic (6-monthly if under the age of 16). Our specially trained nurses will ensure that treatment is effective by checking inhaler technique and measuring lung function regularly, referring you to your usual doctor.  Would all patients attending for Asthma appointments please remember to always bring along their inhalers.
Cervical Smears The nurses are trained to do Cervical Smears. All women aged between 25 and 64 years of age are automatically invited for a smear through the screening programme run by the Health Authority.
