Child Health

Childhood Immunisations

We strongly recommend the Department of Health Immunisation Programme, and our belief in its safety means all our own families have been immunised - trouble free. Your child will be offered an appointment for the regular immunisations issued by the Health Authority. The Practice prides itself on the high uptake of this excellent service, but if you should have any worries or concerns please discuss these with a Health Visitor, Doctor or Nurse.

Baby Health Checks

The doctor will examine your baby at the 8 week check. The Health Visitor or Community Nursery Nurse will monitor your child’s progress. This is an opportunity to discuss your child’s development and progress with a professional and to consider any worries you may have regarding your child’s development and/or examination.

You will be contacted at the appropriate time to arrange a suitable appointment.
