Please contribute to a consultation on digital child health records

The Royal College of Physicians has been commissioned by the NHS to find out parents', carers' and professionals' views about the content of a standard for a digital child health record.

The project has been commissioned by NHS Digital as part of the NHS England Digital Child Health Strategy and is led by the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB), with the aim of developing a standard that is fit for purpose and can be embedded across all nations of the UK. The development of a standard will mean that information can be effectively shared electronically with health care professionals and made available to parents/carers through the personal electronic 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 by making key clinical information available online whenever and wherever it is needed.     
 
This widespread consultation is invaluable in ensuring that all data items are meaningful, relevant, complete and fit for purpose to record/incorporate into clinical information systems. 
 
The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and will close at 5pm on 21 August 2017.  Complete the survey
 
Should you have any questions, please contact informatics@rcplondon.ac.uk
