All doctors provide full maternity services, including preconception advice.
 

Postnatal Care
For the first 10 days or longer if necessary, the midwives will visit you. After 10 days one of the health visitors will be in contact with you and will arrange to visit you. The postnatal examination is usually carried out at six weeks after the birth along with a check up for the baby. Please make an appointment for this in the postnatal clinic.

Childhood Immunisations


All these are done at our weekly immunisation clinic on a Thursday afternoon. We believe that all the immunisations offered are safe and give good protection to children. We hope that all parents will allow their children to benefit from the immunisation programme. If any parent has a concern about immunisations they should discuss this with a doctor, health visitor or the nurse manager.

Further information on children's immunisations can be found at:

Foreign Travel Health Advice

We are able to offer travel advice and all vaccinations with the exception of Yellow Fever.

As different countries have ever-changing requirements and recommendations we advise that you make an appointment as early as possible to plan the vaccination programme you need.  This appointment should be made with one of our nurses who keep up to date with requirements. 

We must have at least 4 weeks' notice prior to your travel date; otherwise you will need to organise to have these carried out at a travel clinic.
