Community Midwives

The midwives work both with our patients and those of our neighbouring practices. They work for the Women & Children’s Hospital, Hull caring for their ladies and for ladies, who wish to birth under the care of York hospital. They hold regular ante-natal, post-natal and booking clinics. They help to look after ladies, whilst they are pregnant and immediately after the birth of their baby, offering support and advice on an individual basis. They work closely with the health visitors and the Children’s Centres in Market Weighton and Pocklington.

Attached Staff

Eloise Ingham (f)

Eloise Ingham is a Community Link Worker, who for part of her role is based at Market Weighton Practice. Community Link workers are there to offer individualised, personal support and motivation to adults across the  East Riding who may require personalised solutions to social, emotional or practical needs. We all have issues in our lives which may affect our health in some way. You may want to improve your confidence, improve the management of your financial position, care for a loved one and need guidance to manage your own wellbeing, or just generally feel better about yourself. Whatever your situation is, we can help to signpost and guide you to gain the right help, support and information required for you to improve your wellbeing.  

Community Link workers are working alongside Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, who are providing Community Connectors. Community Connectors are there to offer individuals further support out in the community. You may want to attend a social group, but feel anxious about attending alone. Your community connector can attend groups, and much more with you to help build your confidence and get you out and about. You can be referred to your Community Connector by your practice Link worker.

George Hinson is also a community link worker. His role is the same as Eloise’s, to provide individual and personal support to adults in the East Riding who would like help with their social, emotional and practical needs. He works alongside the team to support you and signpost you to the relevant services in the community that will improve your wellbeing.
