They will also check your child's general health. This includes:

  • dental health
  • general physical examination
  • growth monitoring

Your PHN also measures your child’s growth. They check the measurement to make sure that your child is growing at a healthy rate.

The PHN will talk to you about child safety. They will also discuss your child's diet, toilet training and any other issues you may wish to discuss.

If you or your PHN are concerned about any part of your child’s check, then they may check them again to see if everything is okay. The PHN may refer your child to a specialist if they think something needs further investigation.
