The slight increase in cost of MCH service per hour delivered is due to increased service demand. Ten MCH centres across Council are open once a month on Saturday mornings for families to access, an increase of eight from the previous year.

Wyndham City Council Says...

Overall participation rates in key ages and stages visits are slightly below than the previous financial year and fall out of the target range. Due to a chronic shortage of MCH nurses across the state a casual pool is not available to keep the centres open during compulsory training.

Wyndham City Council Says...

Participation rates remain high due to the Aboriginal MCH Initiative that has a MCH nurse supporting Aboriginal families based at VACCA. Strong relationships continue to be developed between MCH and Aboriginal families.
