Leaflets and other written information about various illnesses and conditions are available on display and from the practice nurses. We do not have any leaflets produced by the practice.
The health visitors hold clinics on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning. Appointments will be sent for your child to attend these clinics at various stages of their development. The first routine assessment at eight weeks is carried out by the health visitor and a doctor.
Child immunisation clinics are also held at the practice. These are held on a Wednesday afternoon twice a month.
Any patient requiring advice on travel and/or immunisation should collect and complete a travel form from the surgery. A form should be completed for each person going on holiday. Once completed, an appointment should be made to see the practice nurse. This must be carried out at least six weeks before going on holiday. If there is less than six weeks before you travel, you should attend a Travel Clinic.
