Child Health and Immunisations

Childhood immunisations are an extremely important way of protecting your child against serious infections.

The immunisations are given by the Practice Nurses and start from 8 weeks of age.

4-8 week Mother and Baby Check
The 4-8 week post-natal mother and baby check will be carried out by one of the doctors. This is to ensure that all is well with you and your baby. Please book this at reception, and remember to let the reception staff know what the appointment is for, as you will need a 30-minute appointment.

Health Visitors
If you need to contact a Health Visitor they are based at Innovation House, Blackburn and can be contacted on the following numbers: 01254 584248 or 01254 584343
