COVID-19 requirements for Maternal Child Health appointments

We conduct Maternal and Child Health appointments in a way that protects you, your family and our nurses. 

Requirements for appointments

It is important that you and your child visit when you are well.

Our Nurses will be wearing a mask for the duration of the consultation, and it is strongly recommended, that the parent/ caregiver attending the appointment wear a mask, for our Nurses’ safety and yours.

Book an appointment

Feeling unwell?

It is important to note, we are a well baby/person service, therefore we do ask that your review the question below
