Vaccinations & Immunisations
Your baby's vaccination and immunisation schedule.
One of the best ways to protect your baby against diseases like measles, rubella, tetanus and meningitis is through immunisation. Your baby needs their first injections at eight weeks, then 12 weeks, 16 weeks and one year.
Vaccinations are offered free of charge in the UK – just book your appointments with your GP. Remember, as well as protecting your own baby, you're also protecting other babies and children by preventing the spread of disease.

Speech & Language
Speech & Language assistants attend our community stay & play sessions and are able to offer advice and guidance. A speech therapist holds half termly appointments for those that are referred to this service. The Speech and Language Assistant will carry out an observation of your child in a natural play session and provides advice, guidance, reassurance and strategies. The service acts as a ‘triage’ and a gateway to individual assessment by a Speech and Language Therapist if required. If your child attends a nursery, the nursery will be requested to complete the referral to the Speech and Language Therapy Service. Children can also be referred following checks by Health Visitors and GPs.
