Seymour Health has screening processes that aim to capture at-risk children. The child is the central focus here. This means that those children whose families require support will be helped to find such support for you, your family and/or the child depending on the situation.
Nurses and Doctors are mandatory reporters. This means that if they form a reasonable belief that the child is a victim of abuse or neglect, they must report it to the relevant authorities.
