We are delighted to announce that we now have a dedicated Health Visitor attached to the surgery, to help our families with babies and young children.
Kate Raith is based at Thornton Heath Health Centre in Gillett Road and is available to help with any questions or concerns you may have around such issues as feeding, constipation, reflux and other issues. The Health Visiting team also help with any area regarding your child's development and well-being that might not necessarily need a Doctor's opinion or appointment. They can be contacted on 020 8714 2700.
