Child Protection Information Sharing - HL7 V3 API
Use this API to access Child Protection - Information Sharing (CP-IS), the national electronic database of child protection information.
The API can be used by local authorities and unscheduled care providers as follows.
As a local authority, you can:
- upload a patient's CP-IS information
- receive a notification when the patient's CP-IS information is accessed from an unscheduled care setting
- receive a notification of an inactive NHS number
As an unscheduled care provider, you can:
- get a patient's CP-IS information, which will automatically trigger a notification to the relevant local authority
CP-IS is not currently available for use in scheduled care settings.
