DD starting at junior school aged 10. Does she need a check up?

Probably the most stupid question of the day, but nonetheless. She has never lived in England, but has, AFAIK, had all the vax necessary.
Does she need to go to see the GP to check or would that be a waste of her time?
Not sure what the GP would say to this request, perhaps a chat with the practice nurse would be better?

No you just need to register with a gp. Vax schedules here can differ to Europe so it may be worth taking a copy of your dd's certificate in to the surgery to keep in her records. They chased dd's mmr until I did so (and being a Swiss medical history it even had the batch stickers etc)

She is registered with the GP, unfortunately I don't have an exact record of what she had and when, but I can remember it.
I think I'll be talking to the lovely receptionists tomorrow. Thanks.

Ours are really very nice and accommodating. Sadly, they haven't been able to expeidate the delivery of my notes. DH and DD's are already at the surgery, mine are lost in the limbo that is archives sad

Our receptionists are nice too, but they're a rarity grin I moved here from my home town and they had a few dragons in that surgety.
