Baby Clinic and Immunisation
Immunisation saves lives. The World Health Organization estimates that 3 million lives are saved every year worldwide through immunisation.
It is important that all children and babies are fully immunised to protect them from potentially serious diseases. Once common illnesses, such as diphtheria and tetanus, are now rare in the UK because of immunisation. But while polio has been eliminated in Europe, the threat of other diseases, such as measles and meningitis, has not gone away in the UK today.
Parents with worries or queries about any aspect of their child’s immunisations should discuss them with their Doctor, Health Visitor or Practice Nurse.
Our Baby Clinic is held on a Tuesday 13.30pm – 15.30pm
A Health Visitor, Practice Nurse and Doctor will be present.
Please note that Baby Clinic is for Well Babies only. If your child is unwell do not bring them to Baby Clinic.
Please contact our receptionist for details about our antenatal clinic.
