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.
