Attending your appointment

When attending your appointment you must bring your child's health record book which you received from the hospital before taking your new baby home.  It's very important that the health record book is kept up to date.

Rescheduling or cancelling your appointment

We understand that circumstances change without notice so if you can't make your appointment we ask that you contact us by calling 9688 0501 so we can offer the time to someone else.

Open sessions (no appointment necessary)

Please note that from Monday 23 December 2019 to Friday 31 January 2020 open sessions will not be available.  Our open sessions will recommence in 2020 from the week commencing Monday 3 February.

If you are finding it difficult to attend a scheduled appointment we also offer open sessions at selected centres, which provide you with a free 10 minute consultation with a Maternal and Child Health Nurse.  No appointment is necessary to attend our open sessions and families are seen in order of arrival.

Please note we endeavour to provide the best possible service for everyone that attends our centres, however during peak periods it may not be possible for a nurse to see you on the day and you may need to attend a centre at a future date.
