Child and Family Health Advice

Your child’s growth and their ongoing development and health are important for you and your family. The websites and resources below offer helpful information and support: 

Childhood Health Checks

Appointments are sent out automatically by the local health authority for routine child health checks.

The first will be with a GP at the Surgery when your baby is around 6 weeks old. You will be sent information about this and asked to make an appointment at your local Clinic or Practice.

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.

Child Immunisations

Childhood immunisation is an important aspect of your child’s healthcare.  In accordance with the NHS Vaccination Schedule, we offer routine childhood immunisations.  Immunisations are given by our Practice Nurses or other Healthcare Professionals in accordance with the NHS vaccine schedule.

When to Immunise
