We are a training practice which means we will have medical students working in the surgery on four week attachments. All their work with patients is supervised closely by the GPs. They are not yet qualified and cannot prescribe. You may have an appointment at the surgery or receive a home visit that involves them. The receptionist will let you know at the time of booking and you can say if you would prefer them not to be present.
East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust provide the maternity services in our area. Their Community Midwives for Robertsbridge and Battle are Becky Potter and Beverly Quinn. Becky runs a clinic every other Thursday in Oldwood Surgery and Beverly runs a clinic every other Monday in Battle. Visit their website for more information and to self refer www.esht.nhs.uk/service/maternity.
