Specialist Childrens' Services
Self Weigh Baby Clinic
Parents or carers may attend the medical centre to weigh their babies. No health visitor will be in attendance but is contactable via Reception for any queries. This service is available on Tuesdays and Fridays between 2.00pm and 4.00pm in the Health Visitors room.
Children’s Screening Programme
Routine developmental screening is carried out by the Doctor. You will be sent an appointment for this at around aged 7 weeks. It is important that the child attends this appointment as this will allow assessment of the child's growth and readiness for first immunisations which will be carried out a short while after this appointment.
From September 2017 children registered with the Practice will be invited to attend a community clinic at Drumhar Health Centre for all childhood immunisations including pre school boosters. This clinic will be run by a dedicated Immunisation team. When your child is due for immunisation you will be sent a letter asking you to attend Drumhar Health Centre at Drumhar Court, Perth.
If upon receipt of an appointment you require to change your appointment you must contact NHS Tayside Child Health Department on 01307 475267/475282. Staff will note your cancellation and an alternative appointment will be sent to you in around 2-6 weeks. Do not contact the GP Practice to cancel appointments.
