CHILD HEALTH PROGRAMME

All of our doctors are trained and skilled in looking after children’s health problems and are happy to see children in their surgeries. We also offer an 8 week baby check clinic which is usually run by either Dr Steir or Dr Oliver.

At this appointment your baby will be fully examined and you will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you have about your baby’s health. Your baby will usually then be given their first set of vaccinations by one of our practice nurses.

Parkwood Surgery participates in the NHS vaccination programme and we strongly encourage all our patients to have the correct vaccinations at the correct time. Have a look at this link to see more information with regards to the immunisations

The childhood vaccination programme helps to protect against serious illnesses some of which can be potentially fatal. Vaccinating your child is the best thing you can do to keep them safe from these illnesses. Vaccinations themselves are quick and very safe.
