Child Health Checks

The NTER child health checks continue in the Top End.  I’ve been to various remote community health centres over the past few weeks where the teams have been and gone. The verdict is unanimous- a waste of time and money.

Why?  Because the visiting teams see fewer kids than the clinics do, they find already known problems and provide no services to meet the identified needs. 

The most that can be said is that they leave behind a pile of referrals.
