April 2021 News

Training and Teaching

You may be aware that most of the GPs at Danes Camp & Rillwood Medical Practice Partnership have significant experience as GP trainers providing education and clinical supervision for Medical Students and GP Registrars at Danes Camp Medical Centre.

In engaging the same GP trainers it is anticipated that Rillwood Medical Centre will also become a training practice for Medical Students and Registrars from as early as the end of April 2021.

Our qualified GP trainers will be actively involved in mentoring and supervising each clinical consultation. You will be informed if a student or registrar will be taking a role in your consultation (telephone or face-to-face) and your consent will be sought prior to them consulting with you. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and professional conduct as all of our regularly employed clinicians.

Community Midwives

Community Midwifery Hub

NORTHAMPTON GENERAL HOSPTIAL - Community Midwifery Care

An important part of antenatal care is getting information that will help you to make informed choices about your pregnancy.

Letting us know about your pregnancy

As soon as you take a positive pregnancy test, please complete the online Maternity Self Referral Form

If you need help with the form you can call us on 01604 545430

Our phone line is open Monday - Friday 8:30-16:00 (not on Bank Holidays).

Or send your name and contact information to: ngh-tr.midwifenorthampton@nhs.net

This is not an emergency service, if you need to speak to someone urgently with concerns about yourself or your baby please contact your GP or 111.

Your midwife will meet with you in the Midwifery Hub or home and she will ask you questions about you and your family’s health and details of any previous pregnancy’s and births. She will advise you on how to keep well, and give you tips on how to reduce some of the symptoms such as sickness and talk with you about what you can expect from your care.

She will also discuss what will happen at the different appointments and offer to arrange a scan for you and some blood tests. Several antenatal screening tests are performed on a sample of your blood which is usually taken at your booking appointment. In some cases, the baby's father may also be asked to have a blood test to check for inherited conditions, such as sickle cell or thalassaemia.
