Child Development

We consider your child’s health is extremely important and advice is always available.

At 6 -8 weeks we hope to see you mother and baby for a check up with your doctor.


Wednesday 2.00pm – 3.00pm.

Following the child development check, there is an immunisation clinic which is held on Wednesdays.

If you have missed an appointment for immunisation and want to come along without an appointment card please telephone to ensure there is a clinic running.

You are invited to discuss with a doctor any concerns you have regarding immunisation for your child at your 6 week check.

Flu Vaccination 

This is a nasal spray rather than an injection and has proved extremely effective. Clinics start after 28th September and parents of children with health conditions and are therefore at risk, will be contacted shortly either by text, email or letter.
