Practitioners’ Guide to Information Sharing, Confidentiality and Consent

Posted on Posted in News

New information sharing guidance is available for all practitioners and managers working with children, young people and their families within the public, private and third sectors.

This guidance has been produced by partner agencies across Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Moray Council, Police Scotland and NHS Grampian to ensure consistent practice.

The guidance is fully aligned with current information sharing legislation and will empower practitioners to share information confidently to support, protect and promote the wellbeing of children and young people. It is being issued as interim guidance and will be updated to reflect the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and any requirements from the Children and Young People (Information Sharing) (Scotland) Bill in due course.
