Clinics & Services

Baby Checks
You will be asked to make a GP appointment around your baby’s 6 weeks mark – these appointments  are for child developmental checks. Immunisation queries or to discuss other problems, eg sleeping, feeding and child health worries, should be directed towards your health visitor.  Please contact your health visitor in the first instance unless you have a medical condition which requires GP intervention.
