Introduction

The Child Health Information Service liaises across care settings, agencies and regions to ensure that children and young people in their local population receive all the care and services that they are entitled to, for example:

  • Childhood Vaccination & Immunisations
  • GP Practices - GPs and Practice Nurses
  • Health Visiting Teams
  • Independent Midwives
  • Local Authorities
  • Maternity Departments
  • Midwives
  • New-born and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE)
  • New-born Bloodspot
  • New-born Hearing Screening
  • Other Child Health Information Services
  • Safeguarding Teams
  • School Nursing Teams
  • Social Services

This forms part of the Public Health England’s Healthy Child Programme which aims to bring together health, education and other main partners to deliver an effective programme for prevention and support and aims to meet the objectives set out in the National Child Health Digital Strategy, which are:

  • Knowing where every child is
  • Knowing how healthy each child is
  • Enabling the appropriate sharing of information for each child

The Service will be responsible for all children and young people aged 0-19 years (or 0-25 years old for children and young people with a disability). They will ensure that key information on a child’s health is available to their parents, any professionals involved in their care and for public health purposes.

The North West London service will cover approximately 464,000 0-19 year olds; with the South East London service covering approximately 490,000 0-19 year olds.

Resources

A capital-wide child health information service has also been launched using System C’s CarePlus software which provides a comprehensive electronic record of a child’s public health records. This is vital in London as there is a high volume of children who move in and out of the different boroughs; enabling their records to be passed to the other Hub providers easily.
