Due to the increase in COVID 19 cases in Victoria and the tightening of the restrictions until July 31st, Hepburn Shire MCH Service, will be offering telephone consultations to all clients followed by a short face to face consultation all families to complete physical and Developmental assessments until 31st July. We will be following the CHO/Commonwealth advice, 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. If 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 we find ourselves in.
