Baby Clinic & Health Visitor
The practice nurse runs a weekly immunisation clinic Elvington Surgery on a Wednesday 13:00pm - 15:00pm.
All babies born to patients in the practice area are visited by the health visitor from the 10th day after birth and contact will be maintained thereafter by further home visits and developmental assessments by the GP.
Health visitors are qualified nurses with specialised training in child health, health promotion and health education. They are attached to GP practices and work alongside the GP's and practice nursing team to support families with young children. Some typical situations where the health visitor may be of help to you are:
- The health of your baby or young child
- The impact of a new baby in the family
- Your emotional well-being
If you would like to contact the health visitor, her office is based at The Avenues Childrens’ Centre, Sixth Avenue, York. Telephone 01904 551760.
