Childhood Vaccinations

Childhood vaccinations vary from country to country.

Though children may have completed their immunisations in their native country they may be at risk of preventable childhood illnesses in the UK.

Please ensure we have an up to date list of your Child’s immunisation history.

If we do not have any information we shall assume that they are not vaccinated and suggest that they complete the UK Schedule from the beginning.

If you need any assistance please make an appointment with our Practice Nurse.



ICON: Babies Cry, You Can Cope

Plymouth Safeguarding Children Partnership are pleased to announce our new programme, ICON: Babies Cry, You Can Cope! to help parents and carers cope with a crying baby.

Looking after a baby is a very special and wonderful time. We also know it can be a very stressful time and trying to calm a crying baby is something all parents and carers experience. Sometimes as a parent or carer it can feel as if you’re ‘on the edge’ coping with a crying baby.

So, knowing how to cope with a crying baby and that it’s OK to ask for help is a message we want to share with all parents and carers.

Please follow the link below which will take you to our ICON website page where you will find all the details. We’ve also posted some really helpful films on our PSCP twitter page so please follow us and re-tweet these as much as possible so we can get the message out….our Twitter handle is @PlymouthSCP
