Children’s Health | Clare Abbey
The services offered to our younger patients include:

Antenatal & Postnatal Care
Saffron & Blue Medical Clinic is a member of the HSE Mother and Child scheme which provides free ante natal checks to expecting mothers, 2 week baby check and 6 weeks checks for mother and baby.
Please advise the Receptionist at time of booking appointment that this is your baby’s 2 week postnatal/6 week developmental check-up. We recognise this can be a challenging time for parents and we schedule these appointment being mindful of a possible need for longer appointment time than would normally be allocated during the daily GP clinic.
Immunisation is a safe and effective way of protecting babies and children against certain diseases. Under the Childhood Immunisation Programme all vaccines and their administration are provided free of charge for all children. Parents must consent to vaccinations for children up to the age of 16. You are encouraged to discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before making a decision about your child’s immunisation.
