News > Safety Check, Vulnerable Children's Act

From 1 August 2016 all midwives applying for a Healthpac payee number will need to have a Safety Check (as a requirement of the Vulnerable Children’s Act). Please see further information about this on the Ministry of Health website

The Vulnerable Children’s Act also required all LMCs to adopt a Child Protection Policy. The College has developed one for LMCs to utilise or adapt. It is available on the College’s website
