We are responsible for a newborn babies 8 week health checks & their routine immunsations as part of the National Immunisation Programme.

 

When your baby is due their immunisations you will receive a yellow slip in the post from the Child Health department advising you what immunisations they are due. When you receive the slip please contact the surgery on 0161 736 1166 to book an appointent.

 

At 8 weeks old your baby will attend the surgery & have an appointment with one of our Doctors & nurse for their 8 week health check and their first immunisations. The 8 week health check is extremely important for your baby as for many children it's the first time they've been reviewed by a Doctor since they were born. All being well & your baby being in good health your baby will receive their first immunisations. If your baby is unwell on the day of their appointment please still bring them to the surgery, the Doctor can still perform the 8 week check. Please be aware depending on your baby's symptoms the Doctor may want you to bring them back for their immunisations at a later date.

 

In the UK babies have immunisations at 8 weeks, 12 weeks & 16 weeks. Their next immunisations will be around 13 months and the last injections they will receive from us will be their pre-school booster given around 3 years 4 months of age. We also offer all 2-4 year old children the nasal flu during the flu season which runs September - March. Further immunisations given as part of the National immunisation programme will be given whilst your child is at school.

 

Immunisations must be given a minimm of 4 weeks apart. Due to how busy we are for appointments we encourage booking the appointment as soon as possible. Please be aware if you cancel the appointment there may be a wait of up to 4 weeks for the next one.
