Reception and Admin. Team

Our Reception and our Admin team  provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Community Midwives

Obstetric (antenatal) care is provided by the practice community midwife in combination with your usual doctor. Appointments to see the midwife are made via reception. Booking appointments are best made between eight and ten weeks of pregnancy if possible. The midwife will advise you about antenatal classes later in your pregnancy.

The doctors do not offer to supervise home deliveries.

Community Nurses

We have a team of nurses attached to the surgery who provide nursing care for patients unable to get to the surgery. This is usually arranged by your doctor or the hospital in the first instance. For ongoing matters, the team can be contacted on 01332 564900.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing.

We have two health visitors attached to the practice and they may be contacted via Belper Clinic on 01773 820093.

Counsellors

We currently have one counsellor and a cognitive behaviour therapist based here at Whitemoor Medical Centre. Please make an appointment with the doctor if you feel you need to be referred to the team.
