Health clinics resume walk-in service for children
Parents and carers can once again take advantage of walk-in health clinics for children from September.
No appointments are necessary for the child health clinics, that will be opening their doors five days a week at a variety of Family Centres across Southend-on-Sea for the first time since the pandemic.
Children who need regular health check-ups can attend appointment-only clinics at certain libraries four days a week, to make sure they get the medical attention they need.
The clinics are an opportunity for parents and carers to have their children checked and weighed by a Health Visitor, and get advice about all sorts of issues, from breastfeeding to potty training. It can also be an opportunity to meet other parents.
The opening times and locations are listed in the table below.

Cllr Laurie Burton, cabinet member for children and learning, said: “It’s wonderful to see the service once again opening its doors for walk-in appointments. Giving parents and carers the chance to drop by, log their child’s development and ask any health questions they may have.
“Development is so important at the early stages of life, as is support to parents with young babies and children, so I highly encourage parents and carers to take advantage of these free walk-in clinics.”
Cllr Kay Mitchell, cabinet member for adult social care and health integration, added: “The clinics have professional health visitors who will be able to discuss topics such as feeding, sleep training, toileting training, starting solid food as well as development concerns, physical health and any other health related issues. So, make sure to utilise these free clinics to yours and your child’s advantage."
