My child’s health

We work closely with our Health Visitor team to ensure the ongoing health of children.

New babies will be seen by the Health Visitors and an appointment for a eight week baby check with on of the GPs will automatically be made and sent to you. Should you have concerns regarding your baby the Health Visitors are often a very good source of information and guidance.

Baby drop in clinics run at Poplar Road Surgery in Kings Heath. There is no need to make an appointment for these clinics.

The Health Visitors can also issue ‘Healthy Start’ vitamins for both mum and for your baby.

All appropriate childhood immunisations are coordinated and carried out by the nursing team at the practice. Full details of these can be found in your baby’s ‘Red Book’. If you think that any immunisations have been missed please contact the surgery and we will be able to check this for you.
