Good health is an important for a child’s quality of life as it influences participation schooling and
recreation. The early years of a child’s life provide the foundation for future health, development
and wellbeing. A positive start in life helps children reach their full potential, while a poor start
increases the chances of adverse outcomes. To ensure your child’s health is in safe hands, please
book an appointment to see one of our experienced GPs.
Young children are more prone to sicknesses since they are in the stages of building their immune
systems. We encourage parents to make an appointment with a GP if they have any concerns about
their children’s health. This includes both physical and mental health conditions. Behaviour such as
being withdrawn from activities and friendships can be a sign of a mental health issue. To resolve these,
early interventions are always best.
