Child Health Clinics

What are they?

Our Child Health Clinics are run by the Bright Start health visiting teams in both health centres and children’s centres. They are a great opportunity for you to drop in, meet the team as well to ask any questions you might have regarding your own or your child’s emotional and physical wellbeing including growth, development and immunisations. The child health clinics are subject to change during the holiday seasons, so be mindful to check the Family Information Services website during these times.
