Child Health Checks

Health Visitors

You can normally see the Health Visitors at their drop-in clinic; for further information please contact the Practice.

Health Visitors are all trained Nurses who have extra training and qualifications in child health.They are a fantastic source of information about child development and health, parenting strategies, breastfeeding, nutrition and community support. They also offer help with social, emotional and environmental issues that affect families.

Baby Clinic

Please do not bring ill children to this clinic.

Tuesdays 9:30-11:30am

Run by the Health Visitors at Kilmorie Children’s Centre. You may book an appointment with the nurse for Immunisations here at the surgery.

Address: Kilmorie Children’s Centre, Kilmorie Road, SE23 2SP (Next door to the school)

Appointments are sent out automatically by the local health authority for routine child health checks.

The first will be with a GP at the Surgery when your baby is around 6 weeks old. You will be sent information about this and asked to make an appointment at your local Clinic or Practice.

You will also be offered routine health reviews for your child, with your Health Visitor, at 6-8 weeks, 8-12 months and 2-2½ years old.

Please ensure you attend these appointments to ensure your child is immunised and protected.
