Child & Family Clinic social workers screen, triage and arrange clinic appointments and may request collateral information.
For MCFD/DAA referrals, the social worker should attend the appointment with the child/family.
CPSU staff are available for telephone consultation to MCFD/DAA social workers for questions related to child maltreatment.
Legal guardian consent is required for all medical examinations.
Please bring child's PHN to clinic appointment.
Appointments are typically 1 to 2 hours long.
In cases where a child protection investigation is being conducted, the results are shared with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. A written medical report is subsequently sent to the family physician and/or referring agency with the consent of the parent or guardian.
