On the reverse of the card the following information is recorded: date of discharge; to whom discharged and address on discharge. There is also a medical record for the child: physical condition of child on admission; if parent's consent is held for anaesthetics, operations, blood transfusions, immunisations and vaccinations; an immunisation record; and any other pertinent medical information.
