Child Health Checks

Health Visitors

Health Visitors are all trained nurses who have extra training and qualifications in child health. They are a fantastic source of information about child development and health, parenting strategies, breastfeeding, nutrition and community support. They also offer help with social, emotional and environmental issues that affect families.

Child health checks

Appointments are sent out automatically by our local Health Board for routine child health checks.

You will be offered routine health reviews for your child, with your health visitor, at 6-8 weeks, 8-12 months and 2-2½ years old.

Child Immunisations

Immunisations are given by the Childhood Immunisation Team at the surgery in accordance with the NHS vaccine schedule.

Further information on the schedule and vaccines in general can be found on NHS Inform
