Clinics & Services
These are run by the midwife, each week on Friday mornings. The midwife will provide details of Parentcraft and Relaxation Classes. She will visit mothers and their babies after they leave hospital.
Child Health Clinics
The health and wellbeing of the babies and pre-school children in our practice is monitored jointly by the doctor and the health visitor. Children will be checked at regular intervals during their first five years and you will be advised when your child is due for examination. Arrangements will be made for your child to receive all the necessary immunisations at the appropriate times. The health visitor is contactable on 01522 308800.
Immunisations and Vaccinations
These can be done by the practice nurse and we are always happy to give the relevant advice. If you are travelling abroad you may well require special immunisations or antimalarial tablets. Most immunisations for travelling abroad are free under the NHS but a charge is made for some injections, including Hepatitis B injections and for anti-malarial tablets, which are not available under the NHS.
We provide a full range of contraceptive services and advice. For contraceptive advice, please book a routine appointment with the doctor or practice nurse. The doctor and practice nurse are also happy to give advice on prenatal care if you are planning to become pregnant.
