CHILD HEALTH CHECKS & IMMUNISATIONS


The Practice runs a full child development programme which includes full immunisation for the infant and school child, development checks, advice and appropriate referral for all childhood problems. These are provided at regular intervals by the doctors, health visitors and practice nurses.

 

Regular screening is provided to monitor the growth, development and wellbeing of children. It is very important for children to be immunised against childhood illnesses. If you have any questions about immunisations please discuss them with your doctor or practice nurse.

 

Please check the following points before bringing your child to the surgery. There has been a lot of bad publicity in the newspapers about immunisations in children, however, remember your child is at greater risk from contracting the disease than he or she is from suffering a reaction to immunisation.

  • Is your child suffering from any feverish illness? Don't worry about a runny nose without a fever.
  • Does either of the child's parents or brothers and sisters suffer from epilepsy? Epilepsy in more distant relatives is not considered a problem.
  • Is your child taking steroid treatment?
  • Does your child suffer from any disease affecting his/her immune system?
  • Does your child suffer from a severe reaction to eggs?
  • Has your child suffered from a reaction to any previous immunisation injection?

If the answer to any of the questions above is yes, then tell your Doctor and/or your Nurse.
