All new babies are invited for their six week check; this is usually done when your baby is eight weeks old. You should make an appointment to see the doctor. Your baby will have a full physical examination, a review of general progress and given immunisations; any parental concerns you may have will also be considered and discussed.
Child immunisation is offered to all children between 0-5 years old. It is very important for them to have all their routine childhood immunisations as this is the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases. Ideally, children should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimize the risk of infection.
The doctors are available for consultation, by appointment as required.
