Child Protection Information Sharing (CP-IS) - Do you have the complete picture?

On Thursday 4 January, Kirklees Council will go-live with CP-IS which will automate sharing Child Protection Information with the NHS.

This means that Children’s Services will be automatically informed if a child who is either Looked After or on a Care Plan attends an unscheduled medical care setting, if that care setting also has access to CP-IS.

This will provide an additional piece of information to help keep children safe. Information will be shared through walk-in centres, emergency departments, minor injuries units, GP out-of-hours service, ambulance service, paediatric wards and maternity units.
