Child health drop-in clinic – with the health visitor, for immunisations and advice on health and development. Held on Wednesday afternoons in the child health consulting room.
Child immunisation clinics – The Health Board sends parents a letter when immunisation is due. Clinics take place between 1400-1600 on Wednesday afternoons.
