Darwin Medical Practice is also a Training Practice
A GP Registrar or GP trainee is a qualified doctor who is training to become a GP through a period of working and training in a practice.
They will usually have spent at least two years in hospital before you see them in practice and are closely supervised by a Senior GP or GP Trainer.
Midwives: care for and support pregnant women, their partners and new babies, before, during and after the birth. They monitor the health of the mother, counsel her on health issues and explain the options for delivery of the baby. They will take care of mothers and babies during labour and birth and provide advice on breast feeding.
Health Visitors: Are qualified nurses and have additional training in child health and development. They will monitor your child’s growth, answer child health queries and help parents to manage issues related to children under five.
District Nurses: Our district nurses work closely with us and are able to provide treatment at home and advice about care and convalescence after discharge from hospital. They may be contacted via the surgery.
Counselling Service: If you feel you need to see a counsellor, please speak to one of our doctors. We are able to treat anxiety and depression and support you with those events in life which lead you to feel depleted and feeling unable to cope or low. The practice may liaise with other services to provide a comprehensive counselling service through self-help, telephone and face to face sessions making use of voluntary organisations and links with Community Mental Health Teams.
