Childhood Immunisations

Our practice nurses carry these appointments and will be happy to discuss your child’s vaccines with you. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be happy to talk to you about this.

New babies – You need to book an eight week check for your baby with one of the GPs where they will carry out a physical examination similar to that which is undertaken within 24 hours of birth. You will then need an appointment with one of our nurses to give the first set of immunisations at the same appointment.

You can find the full childhood immunisation schedule and more information about each vaccine:
