Published today, this document sets out the information requirements for the delivery of child health services as part of the future health and care system announced in the Health and Social Care Bill.

It aims to:

  • support the delivery of child health services as part of the transition of children’s services
  • deliver consistency in functionality of these important information systems in order to promote better, safer and more effective care for children

It should be of interest to those involved in the commissioning or delivery of child health information systems and to those who rely on such systems to deliver effective services to children. It should also be of interest to the suppliers of such systems.

The next step for the Department in supporting this work will be to develop these information requirements into an outline business specification, detailing the technical requirements of a child health information system.
