Health check

Central Leader - - NEWS -

If your child is about to start school for the first time, don’t for­get to take them for a free health check-up. The B4 School Check gives par­ents a chance to dis­cuss their child’s health and de­vel­op­ment with a nurse. It usu­ally takes be­tween 45 to 60 min­utes and cov­ers hear­ing, vis­ual, growth and oral screen­ings and ques­tion­naires to dis­cuss the child’s de­vel­op­ment. Al­most 10,000 el­i­gi­ble 4-year-olds have had a free B4 School Check in the past six months, an in­crease of 1400 chil­dren over the same pe­riod last year. Call your fam­ily GP or visit bit.ly/1bEs­fHR for more in­for­ma­tion.
