Child Protection Information Sharing (CP-IS) – resources for practitioners
The Child Protection – Information Sharing project (CP-IS) is helping health and social care staff to share information securely to better protect society’s most vulnerable children. this system enables information to be shared securely on a daily basis between local authority children’s services and NHS Trusts across England.
CP-IS connects local authority children’s social care systems with those used by the NHS in unscheduled health care settings, such as Accident and Emergency, ambulance services, walk-in centres and maternity units.
Find out more about the system on the NHS Digital website at digital.nhs.uk/child-protection-information-sharing-project
CP-IS ensures health and care professionals in unscheduled health settings are alerted if a child or unborn baby is subject to a child protection plan or looked after and provides contact details for the Children’s Social Care team responsible for them.
Manchester City Council Children’s Services is live on the system.
