Childhood Immunisations

Vaccinations can prevent your child from getting serious diseases.

Our baby clinic is managed by our Practice Nurse who runs a child immunisation clinic every Thursday afternoon between 13:30pm – 15:30pm  by appointment only. If you are unable to attend for an appointment on a Thursday afternoon one of our patient advisors will be able to book you into an alternative practice nurse appointment that is convenient for you.

Process

When you have a new baby our admin team will contact you to arrange an appointment for a 6-8 week check with one of our GPs at the surgery.  You will also be informed of the appointment date and time for your child’s first set of immunisations. At your first set of immunisations appointment the practice nurse will book in the next set of immunisations to ensure your child receives their vaccinations at the correct time. Our practice nurse advises that your baby will require Paracetamol within 1 hour of these immunisations so please make sure you have this readily available at home.

See this website for the full Childhood vaccination schedule NHS

Alternatively, you can contact the practice to speak to a member of our nursing team who will be able to help you with any queries you have with regards to your child’s immunisations.
