The City of Kingston will create a health record for your child that will include name, date of birth, address, contact details and information about your child’s health and development.
Each time you attend or have contact with the service, new information will be added to the record, to enable all Maternal and Child Health Nurses involved with your child, quick and easy access to information as needed.
This record will be stored in accordance with the Local Government General disposal schedule. If you are moving to another municipality within Victoria you should contact the relevent council to arrange to sign a transfer form allowing us to transfer your childs history. Alternately, if you are moving into the City of Kingston you will need to contact us to complete a transfer form allowing us to receive your childs history.
The information in the record will remain confidential and only be shared with other relevant agencies with your permission (unless otherwise required by law)
