Baby Clinics

 

All new babies are invited to the surgery at 6-8 weeks for a GP ‘baby check’ examination and immunisations at 2, 3 and 4 months. There is lots of excellent information about the vaccines on these websites:

We also invite new parents to attend one of Dr Perks’ Poorly Poppets’ sessions at Christ Church. These are a one hour session giving advice on what to expect as your baby’s immune system develops and what to do if they are feverish, having difficulty breathing, unwell or choking (amongst other things….) Your baby is welcome to come along too and we will be serving hot drinks and homemade cakes. Please see our events page for the date of the next session.

Whilst these sessions are on hold (due to the pandemic) please see the link below for the Poorly Poppets video which Dr Perks made in September 2020.
