Pre-conception health check – Thinking of starting a family? This health screening is designed for women to ascertain their readiness to conceive and identify any potential health risk issues.

Baby & child health checks – These checks allow for babies and young children to be routinely evaluated by our GPs to monitor their health, growth and development.

Paediatrics – PVH Medical has inhouse consulting Paediatricians. A paediatrician is a medical doctor with special training and skills in the diseases and illnesses that affect babies and children, and also in how babies, children and teenagers grow and develop. Your child might see a paediatrician if your GP wants a specialist opinion about your child’s health and development, or thinks your child needs specialised care and treatment.
