Baby Check - A Private Newborn Examination
All babies are offered an NHS Newborn Screening Examination. Dr Reece can perform a private newborn examination of your baby if you wish. Unfortunately this is no longer offered on the Knutsford Suite, the Private Postnatal Ward, at Watford General Hospital.
A newborn baby check can be perfomed at Spire Bushey in an Outpatient appointment.
The examiantion is best carried out within the first 72 hours after birrth. The timing of Dr Reece's private outpatient clinics being once a week may mean this timescale is not achievable for your baby. Dr Reece advises parents to have their baby checked in the NHS newborn examination system as routine, and make arrangements for a private check if desired.
