Child Health

 

Maternity or Antenatal care is provided free of charge for all patients both private patients and medical card holders alike. 

7 antenatal visits and the 2 week and 6 week baby check are paid for under the HSE's Maternity and Infant Care Scheme.

We run a Childhood Immunisation Campaign at Dingle Medical Centre in keeping with the HSE guidelines. 

  • At baby's first visit, the reception team will  open a file for your new baby. Please brings their PPS number to the appointment.
  • If you are a medical card patient, it is important to apply for baby's medical card straight away as they can take time to arrive.
  • Baby's first visit should be for their 2 week check up. The doctor or nurse will check your baby's  weight and examine your baby.
  • Baby's next visit will be for their 6 week check up. The doctor will, once again check  your baby's  weight and examine your baby.
  • Mum will also receive a check up today.
  • Please schedule extra time for your 6 week check to allow for two separate consultations. 
  • PLEASE SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT FOR BABY'S FIRST VACCINE. This is ideally done when your baby is  2 months old and after the date of their birth.
