If you fall pregnant you should see one of the doctors at the earliest opportunity so that we can book you at the antenatal clinic. This is held at EHMC on a Friday. As soon as you find you are pregnant you should immediately start taking a folic acid supplement (400 micrograms daily ) to help prevent spina bifida. These can be obtained with or without vitamins from you chemist.
Counsellors can be accessed via the "Improving Access to Psychological Therapies" service. You can self-refer by clicking here or you can come and see the doctor to arrange this and there is a questionnaire that needs to be completed before you can access the service. It would be helpful if you could complete this before seeing us and the questionnaire can be downloaded here. Please bring it with you when you see the doctor.
Appointments are made by the doctor or nurse for people who have medical needs for a dieticians help. Such conditions include diabetes and high cholesterol. We are not able to offer a “weight watchers” type service.
If you are asked to have a blood test by our doctors or nurses these can be arranged by asking for an appointment with our phlebotomist.
