Sign up

  • You can sign up to My RCH Portal at your next hospital visit or from home.

    At the hospital

    Visit a Specialist Clinics desk or speak to your ward clerk. 

    If you are the parent or legal guardian, you will be asked to complete a My RCH Portal: Parent/legal guardian request for proxy access form. We will need to check your photo identification before we can sign you up. 

    Parents and legal guardians cannot use their child’s activation code to access My RCH Portal. This help us to keep our patients safe and their information private. For more information on why we collect your information and how it is used, click here.
