Child Protection--Information Sharing.
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has developed the Child Protection--Information Sharing (CPIS) initiative, which aims to improve the way that health and social care services work together across England to protect vulnerable children. CP-IS provides health professionals with prompt and easy access to key social care information that can help them to assess whether a child is at risk. The project will link the IT systems of NHS unscheduled care to those used by social care child protection teams, so that information can be shared about children who are subject to child protection plans or who have looked after child status. CP-IS is being rolled out across local authorities in England during 2015, and it is hoped that 80% of the NHS in England will be involved by 2018. HSCIC have developed a video illustrating how the project will work, as well as downloadable toolkits and resources available from http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/cpis.
