Your postnatal check will be arranged for six weeks following the birth of your baby and will be carried out at the surgery by either Dr Allen or Dr Halford.

During this appointment the doctor will also examine your baby for his/her first developmental check. Please bring the baby’s ‘red book’, which you will have been given by the Health Visitor.

If you have not received your postnatal appointment within 4 weeks of your baby’s birth, please telephone the surgery as soon as possible.
