A Childhood Surveillance Clinic is held at the Practice once a week
One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It's the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.
Ideally, kids should have their jabs at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.
Here's a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK for free on the NHS, and the age at which you should ideally have them.
TB BCG and your baby
The BCG vaccine helps to protect your baby against tuberculosis which is known as TB. Please click on the link below to watch a video with more infomation.
