Ante natal clinics are held on Thursday mornings by a member of the midwifery team. They can be contacted by telephone on 0116 258 4834. As well as ante-natal clinics, midwives undertake regular visits to expectant mothers, and new mothers and their babies.
Initial ‘new booking’ appointments are held on Tuesday afternoons. You will need to collect a Pregnancy Pack from Reception and return the required form before making your first appointment. We advise to book when you are between 8-10 weeks.

Childhood immunisations and vaccination clinics are held on alternate Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Appointments for these are sent from Bridge Park Plaza. It is important that you bring your child for vaccinations on the specified date as they need to be given at set times in your child’s development (8, 12, and 16 weeks).
If you are unable to attend the appointment you are allocated, please contact the surgery to let us know and make a further appointment if necessary.
