Baby Clinic (Well Baby)
This is held on Wednesday afternoons, between 14:00 and 16:00. Appointments must be made for 8 week checks. A doctor will assess the well being of infants and toddlers. As all vaccinations are undertaken at this clinic, there is the opportunity to discuss any worries or queries you may have regarding the vaccination schedule. Please note that the health visitor is no longer present at this clinic, therefore we are no longer able to provide the weighing service unfortunately.
You may attend any clinic on the timetable (download timetable here), no appointment is necessary, but waiting may be unavoidable during busy periods. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the session ends to ensure you will be seen as clinics close and blood tests are collected promptly.
It is important for all women between the ages of 25 and 65 to have regular cervical smears. These can be done by either the doctors or the practice nurses.
