Creating a new NHS England: Health Education England, NHS Digital and NHS England have merged. More about the merger.

Implement CP-IS in your organisation

Implementing Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS) requires joint working between local authorities, NHS organisations, their IT systems suppliers and the NHS Digital project team.

Current scope

NHS unscheduled care settings in England must implement links to CP-IS as set out in Information Standards Notice ISN 1609 and the NHS Standard Contract

The unscheduled care settings concerned are:

  • emergency departments
  • minor injury units
  • walk-in centres
  • maternity units
  • GP out-of-hours services
  • paediatric wards
  • ambulance services

IT systems suppliers and their customers therefore need to take steps towards implementing CP-IS.

Future intended scope

Stakeholder feedback has suggested that there is a need to expand the scope of CP-IS into new healthcare organisations but this will rely on a change control process with Local Authorities,  as they are the data controllers for this work.

Engaging with suppliers

The CP-IS project team works closely with suppliers who are developing CP-IS functionality and supports them through the development and assurance of their solutions.

We review the supplier's customer site 'footprint' and work with them to develop an implementation approach. This includes prioritising sites that can 'go live' with their NHS or local authority partners.

We help suppliers to identify an appropriate 'first of type site' for their first 'go live'. And we work with that site to ensure they have successfully completed all of the actions required to 'go live' and make good use of the new functionality.
