These injections need to be booked with the practice nurse.

Our aim is to see that ALL the children on our list are fully immunised against these diseases, unless there are specific medical reasons why they should not be given. Any queries about this can of course be discussed with the doctors or health visitors.

Appointments to see the doctors in these clinics are necessary but the health visitors can be seen without one and will weigh babies and discuss any problems that arise with feeding, sleeping and so on.
