We are a team of nurses, support and admin staff based at the Child and Family Centre in Barking, offering the BCG to vaccination for the four London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge & Waltham Forest.

For Clinicians

Neonatal BCG vaccinations are offered to infants from up to the age of 1 year, for infants living within Barking & Dagenham & Havering as a targeted service to those babies who fit the criteria set out by NHS England. The babies will be risk assessed by GPs, health visitors and the Immunisation nurses and then referred to the BCG team.

The team offers a universal service to the residents of Redbridge borough as the borough is deemed by Public Health England to be a high risk borough.
