Barnet Midwives and Watford Midwives hold clinics at The BECC Centre in Furzehill Road, Borehamwood. If you become pregnant, you will be given a ‘booking appointment’ at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will then be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either the BECC Centre or at the hospital, or both.
Asthma sufferers can make an appointment in this clinic to gain advice and support from our Nurse who specialises in asthma care.
The Practice Nurses provide a cervical cancer screening service. See national guidelines.The test involves the nurse doing a vaginal examination and taking a sample of the cells on the surface of the neck of the womb (the cervix). The sample is then examined under the microscope at the lab.The aim is to look for and identify cancer warning cells. If these are found then treatment can be organised to prevent cervical cancer ever developing.
To have your smear simply book an appointment with the Practice Nurses. Further information about Cervical Screening from NHS UK
