Well Baby Clinic
From 3rd February 2016 there will be no Health Visitor/Well Baby Clinic held on a Wednesday morning at the surgery. This has been relocated to Wychall Lane Children's Centre on a Wednesday afternoon from 1.00 to 3.00 pm. Post natal examinations and baby immunuisations will still be held every Wednesday morning.
Folic Acid - IMPORTANT if you are considering a pregnancy
Research has shown that the risk of having a spina bifida baby can be reduced by up to 80% if the mother takes folic acid (a vitamin) supplements in the three months before getting pregnant and for the first three months of pregnancy. Folic acid is available from the surgery or from your pharmacy.
