Can take a child to the doctors?

Just wondering as I am likely not to be able to get an appointment today and work is very busy.

Ds has been taken by his nan before. I explained when I made the appointment and they had no issue

I have taken DGS on several occasions when DD has been unable to get off work . No problems .

Yup dm did, and to hospital and had him treated. Immune compromised, he needed treatment before I could get there. Same goes if he's at theirs (200miles away) and I'm not. They've had him temporarily registered at their docs to get him seen to, no issues at all

Ok great. Might see if I can get an appointment for him and my Mum take him

Yes they can! But if it's for vaccination then send a signed letter of consent in (unless you want to be phoned at work... Which is what happened to me)

Definitely yes.

Yes should be fine. If there were any procedures needing carried out then you'd need to give consent.

I didn't even mention when booking it that my dp would be taking my son when he was poorly - me and oh were working and dp looking after him so took him in. No problems.

Regular appointment I think ok but my mum had trouble when she took my daughter for her injections. (They wouldn't do it)

Yes at ours but just make sure they are properly "prepped" for any questions that might be asked.
