Immunisations are administered with the carer's consent in accordance with current national guidelines. You should discuss this with your own doctor. Children are at greater risk from catching the disease than from suffering a reaction to the vaccine. Development checks are offered in accordance with national guidelines by our GPs trained for child health surveillance.
Baby clinics are held every Tuesday and every other Wednesday subject to rota.
