Nillumbik Shire Council Says...

The Maternal and Child Health service has increased the number of infants enrolled from birth notifications. However, since 2015, a number of Maternal and Child Health service providers have migrated to a new record system. Difficulties in transitioning to this system have affected the reporting of enrolment data in a number of Local Government Areas. As such, caution should be taken when analysing data for this indicator.

Nillumbik Shire Council Says...

The overall MCH enrolment of Aboriginal families and young children demonstrates a connection to and linkages with the MCH service in Nillumbik. An increase in the raw numbers of this client group accounts for what otherwise appears to be a significant percentage increase from the previous year.
