In particular, the Provider shall communicate effectively with other CHIS providers and relevant services in a timely fashion when children move in or out of the area, ensuring that the child’s record is updated and the relevant health professionals are informed;
— To support Maternity, Health Visiting, School Nursing, LAC and Immunisation Teams and Primary Care in the collation and distribution of immunisation schedules and developmental review schedules in a timely and efficient manner;
— To recording accurate and timely data in respect of all programs encapsulated by the Healthy Child Programme.
