Ante-Natal & Child Health Clinics

 

Regular Ante Natal Clinics are held by the Community Midwife on Wednesday mornings at the Surgery.

 

Child immunisations are also undertaken on a Wednesday morning, following the Ante Natal Clinics. Please ask for details.

 

Child Health Clinics

 

Your baby should have checks at eight weeks of age, eight months, two years and three and a half years of age. The eight week check is performed by Dr Selva. All other checks are arranged via Highlands Health Centre.

 

Advice On Immunisation

 

It is important that all children and babies are immunised. Illnesses such as Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio are thankfully now rare because of recent immunisation policies.

 

We strongly recommend that all babies are vaccinated. If you have any worries or queries about any aspect of your child’s immunisations, please feel free to discuss them with your Doctor, Health Visitor or Practice Nurse.
