Baby Clinic

 

Baby weighing is available upstairs in the Health Visitors Clinic from 13:30 till 15:00 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you have any queries and would like to speak to the Health Visitor they are also available at this clinic.

For the 6-8 week baby developmental check, on a Wednesday afternoon, please have your baby weighed and measured upstairs the day before you come to the appointment with the doctor. Please speak to reception about booking for immunisations and the 6-8 week development check.

Your Doctor, Health Visitor or Midwife will do simple routine checks on your child. Some of these are called "screening" tests. Screening tests and other health checks and reviews are done to pick up problems before they have been noticed. They can never be fully accurate in all cases. This means that sometimes there is a false alarm. In this case you may be told that your baby may have a health problem or condition. However, further tests may show that he or she does not have the condition.


Even if your baby's screening tests for health problems or conditions have been normal but you think there may be a problem you should still point it out to your Health Visitor or GP. You know your baby better than anyone else. Do not assume that because a check was normal that there can't be a problem. If you are worried, always ask.
