Implementing CP-IS in health involves six crucial areas of work:
- Project management, stakeholder engagement and governance (tasks 1-7)
- Technical (tasks 8-15)
- Business change (tasks 16-21)
- Information governance (task 22)
- Communication and engagement (tasks 23 and 24)
- Go live/managing the live service (tasks 25-29)
More detail on these tasks is set out in our step-by-step guide for implementing CP-IS in health settings.
Also useful is our CP-IS SCRa user guide. Use and adapt this to help train staff before going live with CP-IS or when new staff join your organisation
Our implementation managers hold a range of detailed guidance documents to help support organisations through the implementation process. We can also put you in touch with organisations that have been through the process.
These guidance documents are to assist staff with implementing Child Protection - Information Sharing within their organisation, or project managing an element of the delivery.
