Please note during the current coronavirus pandemic all ante-natal care clinics are being run from a central location - your midwife will book you in to be seen either in Ormskirk or at Burscough Health Centre.
Midwives from Ormskirk Hospital attend each Friday afternoon. Once you discover you are pregnant you should book in to see a GP who will arrange subsequent antenatal appointments and check which hospital team you want your antenatal care from.
Expectant mums and dads can now sign up for lessons in parenthood. There are 2 different course available:

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Patients should be aware that fees may be charged for services not covered by the NHS contract. These include:
Fees may also be charged for other special purposes such as:
The fee scale is recommended by the BMA and details are available from the receptionists.
