Digital child health events project – online survey


NHS Digital, in collaboration with the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB), are developing the information sharing requirements for the community child health record which includes the Healthy Child Programme as part of the NHS England's Digital Child Health Strategy. This will mean that birth details, immunisation records and the outcome of developmental reviews will be shared electronically with health care professionals and also made available to parents/carers through the electronic Personal Child Health Record (known as the e-Red Book). This will help ensure that every child receives the health and care support that they need as key clinical information will be available online where and when it is needed.     

NHS Digital have commissioned the PRSB to consult with parents, carers, health and care professionals, industry and clinical informaticians on their draft requirements. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) are leading the consultation, supported by the Royal College of Physicians Health Informatics Unit. 

This survey is seeking views from parents and carers and health and care professionals on the information content of the child health record to ensure that all data items are meaningful, relevant, complete and feasible to record/incorporate into clinical information systems. 
Your views are important to us and will help ensure that the project’s intended outcomes and recommendations are practical and fit for purpose.
The survey is open until 5pm on 21 August 2017 and should take around 20 minutes to complete.
