Baby Week marked with event in Keighley's shopping centre

Keighley's Airedale Shopping Centre is hosting the team from local GP surgeries Modality AWC as part of a celebration of Baby Week Bradford.

A Baby Day event is taking place on Thursday (16th November) between 9.30am and 12noon in the retail unit next to Costa Coffee.

Alongside accessible health advice, there will be lots of help and support for young families such as baby weighing, breast feeding tips and how you can access free books for your child.

There will be teams on site from all the local Keighley GP surgeries keen to let parents know about the importance of childhood immunisations as we approach the winter and the real possibility of a measles breakout.

Dr Phillippa Smith from Modality AWC said: “Baby Day is a great chance to get your baby checked out and with Measles cases rising in the UK it is really important that young families have access to all the help and support available locally, and that young children are up to date with their immunisations. We can help with that on the day. Please come to Airedale Shopping centre and see us.”
