The State Secretary has therefore decided to postpone all hearing tests. If you had an appointment, this will be cancelled.
It is not possible to attend the CJG without an appointment. There are now no walk-in clinics. We advise you to call or mail us if you have any questions. Our children’s nurses will be happy to answer your question. If it is important that we see you, we will make an appointment.
We won’t abandon mothers who have questions about breastfeeding. Let us know if you have a question for the lactation consultant, leave a message or call customer service: 0800 295 40 70 The lactation consultant will call you back as soon as possible.
