Information Sharing and Consent Forms

Information sharing is key to the government's goal of delivering more efficient public services that are coordinated around needs of the individual. It is essential to allow for early intervention and preventative work, for safeguarding and promoting welfare and for wider public protection. Information sharing is a vital element in improving outcomes for all.

It is important that people remain confident that their personal information is kept safe and secure and that practitioners keep to the privacy rights of the individual, whilst sharing information to deliver better services.
