They will also check your child’s physical health. They will check:

  • dental health
  • general physical examination
  • growth monitoring

They will check the results against previous measurements. This is to see that your child is growing and developing steadily.

Your PHN will talk to you about child safety as your baby may now be more mobile.

If you, your PHN or community medical doctor have concerns about any part of the check, they will ask you or your child to come back for a re-check. They might also refer you and your child to a specialist for further assessment.

12 months

Go to your GP or GP practice nurse for your baby's fourth round of vaccines.
