Hepburn Shire Maternal and Child Health Service, is delighted to inform our wonderful community that from 2nd November all MCH appointments will be face to face in the MCH clinic. The Trentham MCH Centre has reopened and will hold a clinic on alternate Thursdays.
CHO/Commonwealth advice has changed, all nurses will now be wearing a surgical mask, face shield, during consultations with clients. We ask that only one adult and the child/baby being assessed is brought to the consultation. To ensure the continued safety of our community we request that families only attend their appointment with the MCH nurse if well, have not been in close contact with positive Coronavirus case and do not have a fever or cough.
Central Highland Rural Health have introduced a policy that all clients attending appointments within Central Highlands Rural Health facilities will undergo a temperature check upon arrival and requested to put on a surgical mask (which will be provided). If you choose not to wear the surgical mask and/or your temperature or your child’s temperature is above 37.5 you will need to go home and the MCH nurse will contact, you to offer you another appointment.
Please remember to bring the Green Book, 2 bunny rugs, a clean nappy and a nappy sac with you to your appointment.
Our team would like to give a huge thank you to all our wonderful families for being so understandings in these unusual times. To make an appointment contact our central booking on 53216500.
