Run by doctors, nurses and health visitors to monitor the health and growth of your baby and offer protective injections. You should be invited to bring your child along for a check-up at 8 weeks, along with injections at 8, 12 and 16 weeks for diphtheria, polio, tetanus, whooping cough and HIB. At I year your child should he invited along for a measles, mumps, rubella immunisation and at 3 years for a booster injection. Any child younger than 4 years who has not had a HiB vaccine or any of the other courses mentioned should contact us to arrange for this to be done.
Please feel free to make an appointment to discuss any problems your child may have with the health visitors. Fathers and grandparents are welcome to come along. We also offer Rubella immunisations and injections to school leavers. Appointments can be made during child clinic hours.
