From 1st October 2018, providers will only be paid for the activity resulting from referrals made through e-RS. This will support local health communities to plan for the paper switch off (PSO) for elective referrals.

Summary Care Records
Summary Care Records (SCR) is an electronic record of important patient information created from GP medical records.
View our SCR dashboard. This data is updated weekly.
The patient can also choose to include additional information in the SCR, such as details of long-term conditions, significant medical history, or specific communications needs. Currently we can provide data relating to those patients with a moderate or severe frailty that have an SCR with Additional Information.
View our SCR Additional Information for frail patients dashboard. This data is updated quarterly.
Child Protection - Information Sharing
The Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) project is helping health and children's social care staff to share information and better protect society's most vulnerable children. The project is linking the IT systems used by local authorities and healthcare organisations so that basic child safeguarding information can be shared between them securely.
