Clinics and Services
If you are pregnant you can self refer to the midwifes based at Homerton Hospital. We host a community clinic staffed by midwives from Homerton Hospital. If you prefer we can pass on your details to the midwives who will contact you directly with an appointment. You will be given your midwife's telephone number so that you can contact them throughout your pregnancy.
Mothers and new babies will be offered an appointment with a GP together at 8 weeks after birth. This is part of routine child health checks and also an opportunity to get advice on matters such as breastfeeding and contraception, and for the baby to be weighed and to start immunisations with the Practice Nurse.
After the birth of a baby, an allocated health visitor will be in touch with you and explain their service in more detail. They will also be available for appointments for advice about babies and young children up to 5 years old at the surgery, at home or at the Ann Tayler Centre.
You can contact them direct for appointments on 0207 683 2634.
