Baby Clinic

Baby clinics are held on the following days:
Wednesday 9:30am-11:30am Health Visitors (Drop In Clinic) - No Immunisations
Thursday 9:00am-12:00pm Practice Nurse (Appt Only)

Thursday mornings are also designated for children’s immunisations. However, if you cannot make this clinic, the practice nurses are usually able to see you in one of their other clinics.

If you have any queries about childhood immunisations or are worried that your child’s immunisations may not be up to date, please make an appointment with a practice nurse.

When you book your baby for their 8 week check  the receptionist will book them with a GP (partner) as a double appointment followed by a double appointment with one of our practice nurses for their 1st set of immunisations on the same day as close to the GP appointment as possible.

 


REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR CHILD’S RED BOOK TO ALL APPOINTMENTS
