You can find a wealth of information on all stages of pregnancy and preconception on the NHS Choices website or onĀ  the website Emma’s Diary.

We’ll also arrange to see you after the birth of your child for a postnatal check, to discuss any issues or concerns.

Babies and Toddlers

We operate a Baby Clinic every thursday with our Health Visiting Team (1PM- 3PM). You can simply walk to have your child weighed or seek advice, including feeding and behavioural issues. Appointments are also available for the 6 week baby check with our GPs and routine childhood vaccinations with our Nursing Team.

We’re here to provide care for your children, both with acute illness, but also concerns around development and behaviour. Simply contact us via the telephone access system to discuss.

Children

We’ll continue to support you with any problems with your children alongside routine vaccinations. You can also find a wealth of services with Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre who provide advice, workshops and daycare.
