Your doctor's surgery is central in supporting you to keep your children fit and healthy. The doctor, nurse and health visitor should have an active involvement in your children's early life.
Every child under 5 has a named health visitor who can advise on everyday problems such as teething, immunisation programmes and any special difficulties. They can also support the rest of the family providing advice on employment and benefits rights, childcare and talking to new fathers about their role.
The NHS Start4Life website has lots of useful guidance for parents of children from birth to 5 years.
