To ensure that your child is developing/progressing and is reaching the development ‘miles stones’ your baby will be seen at regular intervals. When your baby is 6 to 8 weeks old you will be sent an appointment to see the doctor for a development check. After this your Health Visitor will arrange follow up visits.
Your Health Visitor will be able to advise you were you will be able to access your nearest baby clinic
All doctors undertake full ante-natal and post-natal care in conjunction with the Community Midwife.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
