The information collected, the ways it is collected, the health professionals who notify cases and the manner in which the Register operates are not expected to change significantly in the short term.
WARDA obtains information for its cases from a variety of sources, some of which are actively sourced.
With the new Regulations, diagnosing doctors and hospital CEOs will need to ensure that developmental anomalies are notified to WARDA and that this is completed within six months of making a diagnosis.
How to Notify
There are two main ways to notify WARDA of a diagnosis.
Additional information regarding cerebral palsy can be submitted using the Cerebral Palsy Description Form.
All forms will need to be printed off and posted to WARDA.
In the future, diagnosing doctors will be able to inform WARDA of diagnoses using electronic notification.
WARDA staff may contact you to ask you to provide further information.
