District Nurses

We have a Community District Nursing Team ( Virgin Healthcare employed staff ) who are based at Ash Vale Health Centre but who also work out of Frimley Green. The District Nurses take referrals from the doctors, local hospitals and Social Services.

As well as routine district nursing duties, the team are very involved in helping carers in the community and have particular expertise with patients who are terminally ill.

Patients who require nursing care within the home can contact the district nursing team on 01276 539660.

The Medical Centre has a team of Health Visitors whose main responsibilities are the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and the early detection of ill health for registered patients of the Health Centre. They provide continuing care for mothers, babies and children under 5 years of age, as well as giving advice and support on all aspects of child development, nutrition and family life.

They can be contacted for advice. The number of the Health visitor team is in the “Red Book” of your child.

 

Community Matrons

We have two Community Matrons that work with Frimley Green and Ash Vale to support the care of elderly patients at home and in nursing homes. Community Matrons are senior nurses who provide a wealth of experience in community nursing and elderly care. They can be accessed via a referral from your GP.

 

Community Midwives

Community Midwives from Frimley Park Hospital hold clinics at both surgeries each week. The Royal Surrey Community Hospital Midwives also run a weekly clinic from Ash Vale.

The Midwifery Teams provide a comprehensive midwifery service from pre-conception until 10 days after the baby is born. They will help you through the first stages of your pregnancy, giving understanding and experience at a time when you will appreciate it most.

The team sees all our patients through their antenatal care and also care for our patients during labour at Frimley Park Hospital
