Community Midwives

They are the link between your GP and the doctors at the hospital. They run an antenatal clinic at Cranleigh Gardens Medical Centre and Parenthood classes for expectant parents. Messages can be left at the surgery or Bridgwater Community Midwives Office – telephone 436774.

Community Nurses

Health Visitors
