Child and Family Health Advice


Your child’s growth and their ongoing development and health are important for you and your family.  We are happy to speak with you about a health assessment for your child.  Appointments are sent out automatically for routine child health checks.  The first will be with a GP at the Surgery when your baby is around 6 weeks old. You will be sent information about this and asked to make an appointment.

You will also be offered routine health reviews for your child, with your Health Visitor, at 6-8 weeks, 8-12 months and 2-2½ years old.  For more information about Health Visitors and what they do, please click on the following link for more information: Health Visiting Teams | Health Visiting Teams | Oldham Council
