Have your say on how we can improve the Blue Book

The Blue Book (My Personal Health Record) is given to parents and carers in NSW to record their child’s health, development and immunisations from birth to 5 years.

The Blue Book aims to assist parents, carers and health professionals with assessment of children’s health and development.

NSW Health is now reviewing the Blue Book to assess how it’s being used. We invite parents, carers and health professionals to submit feedback on any updates and improvements.

We want to hear from you

We want to hear from you if you have used the Blue Book and live in NSW. You can provide feedback by completing one or both of the surveys below.

  • Parents and carers survey
  • Health professionals survey

Health professionals who are also parents/carers can choose to take one or both surveys. Your feedback will give NSW Health valuable information, to ensure the Blue Book best meets the needs of NSW families.

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:

  • NSW Ministry of Health
