Baby Clinic & The Health Visitors
Baby clinics are held every Monday from 1:30-3:30pm. These clinics are for childhood vaccinations (booked appointments with the Practice Nurse) & a walk-in weighing & advice session with the Health Visitor. We also offer mother & baby 6-8 weeks checks by appointment only with the GP.
The Health Visitors are attached to the Surgery & are available either through baby clinic on a Monday or by contacting them directly on 020 7683 4584.
Health Visitors are all trained Nurses who have extra training and qualifications in child health.They are a fantastic source of information about child development and health, parenting strategies, breastfeeding, nutrition and community support. They also offer help with social, emotional and environmental issues that affect families.
Child health checks
Please do not bring ill children to this clinic.
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.
Please ensure you attend these appointments to ensure your child is immunised and protected.
Immunisations are given by our Practice Nurses or other Healthcare Professionals in accordance with the NHS vaccine schedule.
When to immunise
Different vaccines are given at different ages to protect you and your child. Find out when these vaccinations are offered, and when and where they’ll be given:
