Baby Clinic is for well babies from birth to five years of age.
Children under 5 years of age are seen by either the Health Visiitor for advice and weighing, the Practice Nurse for immunisations and or the Doctor for 6 week check ups. Parents/Guardians need to ring the surgery and you will be given a suitable appointment according to which service your child requires.
It is important to make this initial appointment at least 6 weeks before you travel.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
You can download our Travel Health Questionnaire and bring it to the surgery prior to your appointment.
