Baby Clinic is for 8 week checks and immunisations (injections) for babies and children aged 0-5. They are every Wednesday morning from 9am-12noon. Please note that this is not a drop-in clinic and you need to make an appointment.
The clinics are run by our practice nurse and a GP. The health visitors are not present at the Wednesday baby clinics. Please see below for details of health visitor clinics.
Baby Clinic is for well babies. If your child is ill please make an appointment with a GP.
8 week checks
The Child Health Department will send you an appointment for your baby’s 8-week check which includes the first set of immunisations. This will be done by the doctor. If you are unable to attend at the allocated time please contact us to rearrange an appointment.
The 8 week check is really important for your baby, so please make sure you attend for your appointment.
Future immunisations (after the first set with the 8 week check) are given by our nurse. The Child Health Department will send you a letter to remind you when these are due and will suggest the day you should attend the clinic. If you can’t attend that clinic you can make an appointment for the next clinic.
Immunisations are important to keep your baby well, so please make sure you bring your baby when they are due. You can find out more on the NHS Website.
If you are new to the practice it would be useful for you to bring any details of previous immunisations. This helps us to ensure that your child is up to date with the British schedule.
If Wednesday mornings are not convenient, then please ask the receptionist about an alternative appointment.
