All the partners undertake full antenatal and postnatal care which they share with the community midwife.
Child Health Surveillance
Baby checks at 6 weeks of age are carried out by our doctors. An appointment will be sent to you by the surgery for your baby and for your own post natal check.
Child Immunisations and Vaccinations
Child immunisations take place with a nurse at St Lukes on Tuesday mornings at Botley Surgery and Friday mornings at St Luke's Surgery.
Routine family planning appointments (for pill checks & depo provera injections) can be booked with the nurses.
If you are commencing on contraception for the first time, need to change your contraception or are new to the practice, your initial contraception will need to be prescribed by the G.P. All doctors offer contraceptive advice as part of their routine surgery.
Alternatively, Hampshire's independent sexual health service, Let's Talk About It, also offers free, independent and (of course) completely confidential advice; they will not even contact your GP without your permission. See their website here, at www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk, or phone them on 0300 300 2016.
The Government recommends regular cervical smears for women between the ages of 25 and 65. A twenty minute appointment should be made with the nurse at reception. You will be notified of your result by post and will subsequently be recalled as appropriate.
If you are off work due to sickness for more than 7 days you will need to see the doctor for a sick note before the 8th day of absence. For absences of less than 7 days, your employer must give you a self-certification form to complete.
