We provide antenatal care in pregnancy in partnership with our local midwives and obstetricians. As soon as you know that you are pregnant please self-refer for maternity services by completing the online self-referral form for Maternity Services on the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS site.
The doctors do not provide medical care for home deliveries.
Antenatal and postnatal care is offered by all of the doctors at both surgeries.
For patients booked in at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, antenatal care may be provided by the Community Midwives on the 2nd floor of the Wallace Health Centre.
For the 6 week postnatal check, reception can arrange for a double appointment with a doctor.
Please bring a urine sample before seeing the doctor/nurse (pots are available from reception) for all antenatal checks.
Pregnancy can be overwhelming with all of the questions you might have. We have devised a sheet that tells you what happens next, your choices, dietary advice etc. this can be downloaded from the link below.
Here at the Burney Street Practice we offer all new babies a health check at 8 weeks. This is followed by a vaccination appointment with one of our practice nurses. We strongly recommend immunisations to protect all babies and young children. We are unable to vaccinate children without parental consent. We would be grateful if you could bring their red book along with you, as it gives details of your child’s previous immunisations.
The doctors, nurses and health visitors are happy to discuss and to advise on all immunisations and any concerns you might have about the development of your baby.
Health Visitors are located on the 2nd floor of the Wallace Health Centre.
