Clinics & Services

Ante-Natal Clinic

The midwife can be contacted at Nevill Hall Hospital between 09:00 and 17:00 any day on the telephone numbers below;

  • Mobile Number: 07946 578717
  • Office Number: 01873 732974 (answer machine available)

In addition to the normal antenatal clinics which you will be attending, many of you will be eager to learn as much as possible about what to expect during pregnancy and labour.

The community midwife would be delighted to welcome you to her Aqua-natal class at Abergavenny Leisure Centre. There is also a pregnancy yoga class provided at the Hospital, this can be attended from 14 weeks of pregnancy. Both these are an ideal opportunity to keep fit and meet other mums to be. If you are interested in either of these classes please telephone one of the numbers above to get more information, or to simply talk to someone in confidence.

There is a grant to help you give your baby a positive start in life. It's called the Sure Start Maternity Grant. You can get this form if you or your partner are getting Income Support, Income based Jobseekers Allowance, Working Families Tax Credit or Disabled Persons Tax Credit and IF it is your first baby.

Cervical Smear and Well Woman Appointments

All women aged 21-64 years are offered a smear test every three years under the national screening programme. Appointments for cervical smear tests can be arranged with the nurse by contacting the appointments desk. These appointments can only be made on or after the date stipulated on the letter sent to you by Cervical Screening Wales.

Breast awareness and self-examination may be discussed as part of the Well Woman check but breast examination will not be performed. Any woman who requires breast examination should consult with their GP.

Child Immunisations

Please register your child as soon as possible after birth or appointments for immunisation will be delayed. If you are unable to attend at the given time, please contact the practice for further advice and another appointment. Please contact the surgery if you have not received an appointment by the time your baby is 2 months old.

Family Planning

Contraceptive advice is available from the nurses and all doctors during routine surgeries. A normal appointment should be made.

Minor Surgery

This is performed at the surgery by some of the doctors. Various problems can be treated, such as injection of painful joints, removal of skin lesions and treatment of warts on referral by the GP. This may save a patient the inconvenience of being referred to the hospital.

Travel Clinic syringe

A nurse-led travel clinic is available 5 days a week and is on an appointment basis only. Patients are advised to inform reception that they require an appointment for travel advice because these appointments are of 20 minute duration. Advice on vaccinations, anti-malaria medication and other travel-health related issues can be discussed with the practice nurse.

The practice is also a registered Yellow Fever Centre and provides the necessary vaccination and documentation required for areas requiring yellow fever vaccination. Please remember even though you might have been fortunate to book a last-minute deal, we DO NOT have last-minute appointments. You are advised to attend the surgery at least 8 weeks before departure and for gap-year students or around-the-world travellers then forward planning is essential (some vaccinations need to be given 6 months in advance). Vaccinations will not be given within 72 hours of flying due to the possible risk of adverse reactions. It is therefore essential that you plan ahead and seek advice for your trip. More information is available on the above tab.

Temporary residents that need advice about travel are recommended to attend their own GP surgery for this.
