Skills for Care guide on Information Sharing for Social Care Employers

Skills for Care have published a new information sharing guide - Information sharing for social care employees.

Government policy has outlined the importance and increasing need for information sharing between organisations at a local level. The Information Governance Review: To share or not to share, led by Dame Fiona Caldicott, states that every citizen should feel confident that information about their health should be securely safeguarded and shared appropriately when in their interest. Everyone working in social care and health should see the use and safe sharing of information as part of their responsibility. This is why Skills for Care have produced this guide to help social care employers think through these issues and begin to skill their staff to meet these new challenges.
