WELL BABY CLINIC

Parents are invited by child health to bring their children for immunization to the Tuesday morning Baby Clinic, appointment has to book in advance.

Vaccinations are given by the Practice Nurse, but if a baby is having their 1st immunization at 8 weeks of age, they will need to see the GP first for developmental checks. If the appointment is missed due to illness, please contact the surgery for a further appointment. Remember that your child is at risk if not vaccinated. Parental consent is required for immunization.
