Clinics & Services
Antenatal services are provided by the community midwife: she has a surgery on a Tuesday for follow up antenatal appointments and for new patients.
Nurse Karen Wilders holds asthma reviews on an individual appointment basis.
Child Health Surveillance
Every 1st, 2nd and 3rd Thursday of the month clinics are held by the nurses for child immunisations. 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.
