Paediatrics – protection and care for your child

Paediatrics gives parents the peace of mind they need to be certain that their child is healthy and in safe hands. All of the GPs at Basuto Medical Centre are experienced in assessing and treating children of all ages. We also cover a full range of acute and chronic medical conditions.

One of the services we offer is routine newborn (6 week) baby checks. This will consist of a physical examination and a review of their development. As well as ensuring your baby is healthy and developing as they should, this also provides you with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If you have any concerns, please feel free to express them at this time. We will also provide any necessary health advice to get your baby off to the best start in life.

Our paediatrics team can also provide regular developmental checks and routine childhood vaccinations. These will always be in-line with current guidelines. Some of the vaccinations we carry out include:

  • The eight-week 6-in-1 vaccination
  • PCV
  • Meningitis B
  • Meningitis C
  • Rotavirus
  • Measles, mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  • Flu
  • HPV
  • 4-in-1 pre-school booster
  • 3-in-1 teenage booster

Additional vaccines can be given to conform with alternative national schedules.

When required, we offer referrals within a well-known network of paediatric specialists.
