Creating a new NHS England: Health Education England, NHS Digital and NHS England have merged. More about the merger.
Take a look at the prototype status for additional settings for the Child Protection Information Sharing project.
What we are doing and why
CP-IS is currently live across all the following settings:
minor injury units
GP out-of-hours services
Additional settings have contacted NHS Digital directly expressing an interest in accessing CP-IS within their site. They have a business need to be able to check whether a child is on a plan and a responsibility to ensure the paramountcy of the child.
How we are doing it
We have a legal and Information governance basis in place to do some time limited prototypes at these settings in order to assess their suitability for wider implementation. These settings are already connected to the NHS Spine, have already implemented the Summary Care Record application and are delivering unscheduled care.
