Implementation process for healthcare organisations

Our regional implementation managers work closely with healthcare organisations and local authorities to guide and support them through the CP-IS implementation process.

The process varies between healthcare organisations and depends on the IT systems and working practices that are currently used, and much more. 

Implementing CP-IS in health involves five key areas of work:

  1. Project management, stakeholder engagement and governance (tasks 1-8)
  2. Access and smartcards (tasks 9-10)
  3. Technical (tasks 11-14)
  4. Business processes (tasks 15-21)
  5. Go live/managing the live service (tasks 22-30)

More detail on these tasks is set out in our step-by-step guide for implementing CP-IS in health settings.

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. If you are just starting out on your implementation journey, please contact us so we can help you. The resources available for this implementation support will reduce at the scheduled end of the programme in March 2019, so you are advised to start the process as soon as you can.

These guidance documents are to assist staff with implementing Child Protection - Information Sharing within their organisation, or project managing an element of the delivery.

Implementing Child Protection - Information Sharing in health settings

A step-by-step guide for implementing Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) in health settings was published in July 2018 (this updates the draft version which was released for consultation in March 2018).  The guide is aimed at staff in healthcare organisations who are responsible for implementing CP-IS. It has been designed so that staff can download the guide and lead the work that's needed to implement CP-IS.
