Child development clinics

At approximately 10 days old the management of your baby’s health checks will pass from your midwife to your health visitor, who will organise an ongoing programme of care.

Your doctor will do a full medical for you and your baby at 8 weeks. This appointment will give you an opportunity to share any concerns you may have. Your Health Visitor will then contact you at regular intervals about your child's development. She will always be pleased to talk to you if you have any concerns at any time and is available on 01962 831088. For more information on Health Visitors in your area click here
