Community Midwives

Once patients are sure they are pregnant, the next step is to book an appointment with a midwife by calling NHS Lothian Maternity Services on 0131 536 2009.  You can also find useful information by visiting https://services.nhslothian.scot/Maternity/Pages/default.aspx


 


The Community Midwifes are based at Pentlands Medical Centre. As soon as your pregnancy is confirmed they will provide you with all the care and information you will require to have a healthy, happy pregnancy. During your pregnancy they will arrange informal Parent Educational Classes where parents come together to share knowledge and experiences.

Community Nurses

Tel: 0131 449 8620


District Nurses are employed by the NHS and provide nursing care for our patients who are housebound.  They provide skilled nursing care in the patient’s home environment. The district-nursing sister will assess the patients health needs and arrange for nurses to visit accordingly. She will refer onto other agencies to ensure that the patient’s non-nursing needs are also met appropriately. District nurses work with patients and their families to provide care, advice and emotional support throughout the course of their illness.
