SCCI1609: Child Protection - Information Sharing

Summary

The Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) programme is delivering a solution to share a specified data set between children's social care and health unscheduled care settings.

About this information standard

The Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) programme is delivering a solution to share a specified data set between children's social care and health unscheduled care settings.

This will help improve decisions around children who are being abused and/or neglected. It is a national solution for England that will also deal with the issues of migration of children across local boundaries. The messages shared between social care and health will lead to better outcomes for vulnerable children in society.

This standard is intended to be delivered at a national level across England by 2018. In order for child protection to be fully effective all Local Authorities and all NHS unscheduled care settings need to adopt, use and where possible integrate this standard into current processes and solutions. National adoption will protect vulnerable children.

This information standard is published under Section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. An Information Standards Notice (see below) provides an overview of scope and implementation timescales, and the Specification and Implementation Documents provide further detail for those who have to implement the information standard.
