Children’s Checks and Vaccinations
Developmental checks for 8 week old babies are carried out by a GP. Appointments will be sent out automatically when checks are due.
Your child will be invited for routine vaccinations when these are due, or please enquire if you have any questions about the standard schedule.
Our health visitor team is available for telephone calls on 03000- 268640.
Health Visitors are all trained Nurses who have extra training and qualifications in child health.They are a fantastic source of information about child development and health, parenting strategies, breastfeeding, nutrition and community support. They also offer help with social, emotional and environmental issues that affect families.
You will also be offered routine health reviews for your child, with your Health Visitor, at 6-8 weeks, 8-12 months and 2-2½ years old.
Please ensure you attend these appointments to ensure your child is immunised and protected.
Immunisations are given by our Practice Nurses or other Healthcare Professionals in accordance with the NHS vaccine schedule.
