Hi Suzanne,


There are different ways of referencing these government reports, but here is one way of doing it:

Author Year, Title, Publisher, Viewed date, <URL>.

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, SESLHD Gestational Diabetes Mellitus Management (GDM) policy, NSW Government, viewed 10 April 2019, <URL>.

You can follow the guidelines for 'Reports' to construct these references. These guidelines are not very prescriptive, as there are different types of reports.

But, as long as someone can understand what type of report you have cited by looking at your reference, and as long you haven't missed any obvious parts, then you are fine.

Hope this helps.
