Childhood immunisations are pre-bookable appointments which are generally held on Tuesday afternoons. Please phone reception to book an appointment.

NHS Choices has a great planner for new parents who can input their baby's details and then download a planner telling them when each immunisation is due. Please click here for a link to the planner.
Here's a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK free on the NHS, and the age at which you should ideally have them.
