The ANDA Satellite pilot service was set up in 2011 working from Poole Medical Centre located at 36 Parkstone road Poole. This is a newly refurbished GP surgery located just behind the lighthouse (art centre) in Poole town centre.
The service is staffed with 2 senior Day Assessment (ANDA) midwives called Sam Dell and Carolyn Burden. Both have worked in the main ANDA unit in the maternity for many years and have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience.
The ANDA Satellite pilot has been designed to provide seamless service providing women centred care, reducing waiting times and provides a continuity of midwife during a high-risk time of pregnancy.
There are two couches in the ANDA Satellite room with two CTG machines so we can monitor the fetal heart of the babies that require it.
We see a range of conditions from ongoing problems in pregnancy such as reduced liquor volumes and pre-eclampsia to problems that women face on a day to day basis such as concerns about the babies movements or if they think their waters have broken at any gestation.
The problems we are unable to see are women with contractions, pain, bleeding or if the lady is under 18 weeks gestation as we do not have any doctors available to review the women.
The service is run Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm
If you have a question or any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us on 01202 676063 and we will be happy to talk to you.
