The midwife holds booking clinics at the surgery on a Wednesday for your 1st appointment only, further appointments will be at The Meadows Children’s Centre. We share antenatal care with The Jessop Wing and will arrange an appointment for you with them.

Baby clinics are held on a Thursday morning with the practice nurse. This clinic is for you baby’s 2nd and 3rd baby vaccinations and also for their MMR and Menitorix when they are 12 and 13 months old. The 1st baby vaccination will be given by the GP or the nurse when you baby has their 8 week medical.
