- Child Health

Please enquire at reception for dates and times of clinics.
We provide methods of family planning, including the contraceptive pill. If you require a diaphragm or a coil fitting, you will need to arrange this at a family planning clinic.
You can self-refer to one of the local hospitals to help them to start planning all your regular antenatal care. If this is your first pregnancy please book a routine appointment to see a GP for more advice. Visit Guy’s and St Thomas’s or King’s College Hospital websites. If you are pregnant under 18 weeks and have strong pelvic pain, bleeding or severe vomiting – you can walk in to the Early Pregnancy Unit at GSTT for full assessment.
Contact our reception team to book an appointment.
It's important that vaccines are given on time for the best protection, but if you or your child missed a vaccine, contact your GP to catch up. Click here for details of NHS vaccinations and when to have them.
Please do not bring ill children to this clinic.
You will be offered regular health and development reviews (health visitor checks) for your baby until they are 2. These are to support you and your baby, and make sure their development is on track.
Appointments are sent out automatically by the local health authority for routine child health checks.
The first will be with a GP at the Surgery when your baby is around 6 weeks old. You will be sent information about this and asked to make an appointment at your local Clinic or Practice.
You will also be offered routine health reviews for your child, with your Health Visitor, at 6 to 8 weeks, 8 to 12 months and 2 to 2½ years old.

Health visitors are trained nurses who support and educate families from pregnancy through to a child's 5th birthday.
They are a fantastic source of information about child development and health, parenting strategies, breastfeeding, nutrition and community support. They also offer help with social, emotional and environmental issues that affect families.
Long Term Conditions
Care and Support Planning is used to help patients with Long Term Conditions. Patients with Long Term Conditions often need ongoing care and support.
This helps you get more out of your annual review appointments by reorganising the way things happen and giving you more information before you see one of our Nurses. It should help you talk about:
- What support you may need
- What is important to you
- What you can do to look after your health and stay well
Your care and support planning review will take place over two separate appointments. This provide you with time to think about what you want to get out of these visits.
What happens at the first appointment?
At the first appointment, you will be asked to attend the surgery to have a number of tests done with a Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant. The tests may include a blood test (non-fasting), weight, blood pressure and, if you’re diabetic, a foot check. The Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant will either book your next appointment which will be with one of our Nurses, or ask you to arrange this appointment with the Reception desk.
What happens next?
Your test results from this appointment will be available when you attend to see the Nurse. The results of this test will be discussed with the Nurse and any appropriate action taken.
The care and support planning appointment
You will be able to ask questions and talk about what’s important to you at this appointment. The Nurse will raise any issues they are concerned about. Once you both agree on the main items, you will work out a plan together and identify any support you need.
