A FAMILY Hub Information Sharing Service is being established at Lancashire County Council to help services and partners share information and deliver cohesive support to children, young people and families.
Information will be taken, safely stored and shared to and by appropriate practitioners such as school nurses, family safeguarding teams, NHS and police. This will be done on a need-to-know basis and confidentiality will remain a priority.
Information is shared in lots of different ways which sometimes means that information is out of date and people who use services have to repeat themselves to practitioners.
It will free up valuable time for practitioners by reducing the need for inputting and processing information and will increase the quality time spent working with and supporting children, young people and families.
