Description

Uri Ririki - he taura o te ate

The young progeny - the strings to the seat of one's emotions

Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre launches in November 2019

What is Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre?

Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre works with your health providers to make sure your child receives all of their health checks and immunisations on time that help to keep them well.

Your child receives their health checks from when they are born up to the age of six. These are provided by your  midwife, doctor, nurse, Well Child Tamariki Ora, Before School Check (B4SC), vision, hearing, and oral health providers. 

What information will Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre record about my child and whānau?

  • Your child’s name, date of birth, gender, ethnicity, National Health Index (NHI) number
  • Mother's/caregiver's name, contact details and NHI number
  • The health providers you have chosen for your child like your doctor, midwife and Well Child/ Tamariki Ora provider 
  • When your child’s health check and immunisations are due and completed  

What information is not included?

We respect your privacy and will not record any clinical information about you or your child. We will only record whether or not your child has received their health checks and immunisations.

What will Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre do?

Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre will:

  • Connect - by sharing your up to date contact details with your chosen child health providers so they can remain connected with you until your child turns six*
  • Record - by ensuring you child’s health check and immunisation dates are recorded in one place
  • Support - by supporting you to find a child health provider that best suits you and your child, if you are new to Auckland

*If your child's health providers cannot get in touch with you, we may connect with the Ministry of Social Development or the Ministry of Education for up-to-date contact details. We may share your child's name, date of birth and gender to get your contact details. No clinical information will be shared. 

Do I need to register my child to Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre?

Babies and children up to the age of six will be automatically registered from November 2019.

You do have an option to opt off if you do not wish for this information to be monitored.

Your child’s NHI number, date of birth, contact details and health check information up to the opt off date will remain on the system, along with your opt off decision. This will mean health providers cannot access the information about you or your child after you opt off Uri Ririki - Child Health Connection Centre.
