Childhood Immunisation and Baby Clinics

Childhood immunisations

Childhood immunisations are routinely offered by the nurse practitioners. Currently they are given to babies and toddlers at 2, 3, 4, 12, and 13months and to preschool children between the ages of 3 and 5. However, some immunisations may be given in hospital soon after birth or at school between the ages of 10 and 14. Please check the UK immunisation schedule for more information on immunisations.

Baby Clinic

The doctors and nurses are always available to provide advice about child health and development. We also provide a health check for all babies at 6 weeks of age. The baby’s 6-8 week check looks at physical health and development and is an opportunity to discuss with your doctor topics such as immunisation, feeding or other child health concerns you may have.
We also do the mother’s postnatal check at the same time. It is important to inform the receptionist that you are booking for the 6-8 week mother and baby checks as they require longer appointment times.
