Availability of BCG and Hep B vaccinations in London

We want to give DD (13 months) Hep B and BCG vaccinations. This will have to be done privately, but I don't know who to go to to do it. Has anyone had this done in London? Any recommendations? I know the Portland does it, but I have no experience of the paediatricians there, so don't know who's a good one to pick. Thanks.

You could ask your GP to do it privately?
I got BCG on the NHS for my DD even though it was not routinely offered in our area - you could try your luck and ask, eg if you have family history or travel to high risk countries.

Well done! Our GP is not interested in either doing it or suggesting where we might be able to get it. Seems rather affronted by the idea that we should want something off the usual menu as it were....
