Children's Immunisation

The Doctors at Aches and Pains Medical Practice are to offer regular Baby Health Checkups.

For all Baby Health Checks please bring your Personal Health Record Booklet. This booklet will be filled out to keep a complete history of your childs health and development.

After the consultation with the doctor we are able to offer to you the services of a registered nurse who is able to perform a full health check which includes weighing and measuring your baby and giving any baby vaccinations that are due.

 

We are able to provide a Bulk Billed consultation and Free Childhood Immunisation Service.

 

Health checks are recommended as follows:

  • With the GP within 5- 10 days of baby being discharged from hospital.
  • An initial assessment with a GP between 0 – 4 weeks.
  • Subsequent checks at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months an older as recommended by your Doctor or GP.

 

All consultations and baby immunisations provided by our Doctors will be Bulk Billed Service.
