Child Health Surveillance
Co-ordinated between the practice nurses and the health visitor. We will send you an appointment when it is time for your child’s check. We see children when they are six weeks old for their first assessment and at regular intervals up to three and a half years old.
We are keen to make sure that our young patients are given protection against serious infectious diseases. We believe a regular routine vaccination programme is extremely safe and effective.
