We offer a free, comprehensive childhood vaccine service from the age of two months. Vaccinations are extremely important for your baby as they can prevent some very serious childhood illnesses.
Our doctors can talk to you about the vaccinations, explain them in detail and answer any questions or queries you might have.

General Childhood Illnesses
Doctors are available to deal with all childhood illnesses. Increasingly we are seeing problems with children being overweight. This can be a hard problem for parents to deal with on their own. We encourage parents who are worrying about their children being overweight to contact us. We can go though different options with them and if necessary refer them on to a primary care dietician for management.
