Child Health Surveillance


Our attached Health Visitors hold a weekly clinic at the Surgery to provide the necessary childhood immunisations and to make sure babies and pre-school children are developing satisfactorily.


The Health Visitors liaise closely with our GPs.  Dr. Pauleen Shearer , Dr Lindsay Miller and Dr Claire Oldfield  have  a special interest in Child Health Surveillance and provide the six week check for newly born infants.
