The health visitor services have been reorganised and we no longer have a Health visitor at the baby clinic.  The health visitor baby clinic is held on Monday’s at the Burnage primary care resource centre.  Please remember to bring your child’s red book to every appointment.

For infection control reasons we are no longer able to supply toys, play mats etc in the baby clinic.  Please bring your own toys.  Whilst we try to minimise delay in waiting some weeks the baby clinics can be busy.

Dr Burgess, Dr Murray-Brown and Dr Adams-Strump see babies for their eight week check on a rotational basis.

Travel Clinic

Please complete a travel risk assessment form, Travel Risk Assessment Form or available at reception, prior to travel and hand it to a receptionist. You will then need to contact the surgery a week later to find out what vaccinations are required and book an appropriate appointment.

Please make sure your forms are submitted at least 4 weeks prior to travel as some vaccinations will require multiple courses over a short period of time to be effective.
