Children and Young People
We offer an 8 week check to all new mums and their baby (or babies). This is a double appointment with the GP and an nurse appointment soon after for the first set of immunisations. We feel doing this on the same day is more convenient for you.
The current UK immunisations schedule is UK Immunisation Schedule
The health visiting and school nursing teams are not based in our building but we hold regular team meetings with them to co-ordinate any shared care.
The practice safeguarding lead is Dr Olivia Munn.
We encourage teens to share their health care needs with their parent or guardian but are happy to see teens confidentially who access our services independently. Our receptionists are specifically trained to offer appropriate services when you call up or drop in. You can register with your own mobile number if you choose and you can register for online access in your own right via reception. Please ask for details.
