Children & Maternity
All Doctors offer advice about all methods of contraception, but if you require a coil to be fitted, please contact reception who will advise on the best Doctor to see to discuss this method of contraception with you and arrange fitting at a time that is convenient for you and the Doctor.
Solent NHS Trust has designed a brand new bespoke website – www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk. It is an innovative site, where users can access full sexual health service information including all walk-in clinic times. Any changes to clinics are listed within the “News” section on the homepage. There is also a “Clinic changes” button on the clinic finder, which is also on the homepage.
All GPs provide this service and are happy to see patients who require this service at the next available appointment.
The Doctors provide full antenatal care during routine surgery times. We aim to provide, with our Midwives, continuity of care throughout pregnancy and the post-natal period. Post-natal checks are done six weeks after delivery, and the baby is examined at that time prior to the first vaccination.
All young children are offered checks at intervals to check on their children’s development, growth and physical health. A physical examination is carried out by the Doctor at 6 weeks and at 8 months of age. Development checks at 8 months, 18-24 months and 39-48 months are carried out by the Health Visitor.
