Baby Clinic / Health Visitor Clinic / Child Developmental checks
From April 2019, the Health Visitor at West Hampstead Medical Centre will be moving to a Baby and Child Health Hub based at Abbey Community Centre at 222c Belsize Road, Kilburn, NW6 4DJ.
The new hub clinic will allow:
- Parents to have opportunities for sharing experiences and mutually support each other through a more social experience.
- A more in depth focus on the parent–child interaction and support for parenting skills.
- A more interactive experience (outside of weighing and measuring), that allows staff to build a supportive relationship with parents, by giving both space and time for parents to understand their options.
- Support for baby feeding including a private space for breastfeeding peer supporters to provide 1:1 help where required.
The Baby Hub Clinic at Abbey Community Centre takes place there every Wednesday morning from 10.00 – 12.00.
For more information about Baby and Child Health Hubs in Camden you can e-mail the Health Visiting Duty Desk on email@example.com or call 0203 317 3032.
Vaccinations for the Under 5's
Information about some of the possible side effects of vaccinations that might occur in babies and young children up to 5 years of age, please click here .
Immunisation schedules can vary between European countries and internationally. If you are unsure whether you/your child is fully protected according to the UK schedule please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse and bring in any past immunisation history you may have so that we can clarify this.
Vaccines that are not available/you are not eligible for on the NHS schedule, such as varicella (chickenpox) and hepatitis B, may be obtained locally at pharmacists offering vaccination services or travel clinics. There is a large availability of these in London. Please check with the individual provider for vaccine availability/costs.
