Good data sharing- guidance to make sure that care professionals understand when they should share information and how to do it safely

The Department of Health published guidance in November to help care professionals make good data sharing decisions. The deadline for feedback on the guidance is approaching, and comments are needed by 31 January. The intention is to remind frontline workers that there is a duty to share information between health and care professionals for the purposes of giving people good, safe, seamless care. This guidance is to make sure that care professionals understand when they should share information and how to do it safely, and where to turn when in doubt. It is about protecting confidentiality whilst making sure people get the best care and don’t fall in cracks between different services. The feedback will help improve the document and make it even more useful to those making decisions about sharing information to support the care of individuals.
