Postnatal Care

The Health Visitor will attend you shortly after you have had your baby to give advice and support about your baby’s needs and development. This visit is usually made 10 days after delivery.

When your new baby is 6-8 weeks old, you will receive an invite to come to the surgery for your postnatal check-up and your baby’s development check. The GP clinic for postnatal appointments is on Tuesday afternoons 13:00 – 15:30.

It is important to bear in mind that we and other local services may not be informed of the birth if your baby is not born at Kings. If you have not received an appointment by 6 weeks please contact the surgery.
