A survey is asking for views on what the content of the shared child health record should be to optimise usefulness for those accessing them.

The online survey is being conducted by the Professional Record Standards Body which is working with NHS Digital to developing the information sharing requirements for the community child health record. 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),” said PRSB. “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.”

Also involved in the development are the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and the Royal College of General Practitioners, supported by the Royal College of Physicians Health Informatics Unit.

Health and care professionals, as well as parents and carers, are asked to complete the 20-minute survey, which is open until 5pm on 21 August 2017
