Digital child health strategy information standard

The PRSB is working in partnership with NHS Digital's digital child health programme to help implement NHS England's digital child health strategy.

The strategy aims to deliver more integrated services, which support children and their families better. Two key objectives are: a) knowing where every child is and how healthy they are and b) appropriate access to information for all involved in the care of children, including parents and carers through (online) personal child health records.

A key component is a child health events catalogue to log events such as screening checks, immunisations, notification of an allergy or a condition – to be shared between those who need to know, including parents and carers.

The PRSB will be involved in the work to develop the child health events catalogue. The PRSB and its partners will conduct widespread engagement in order to achieve a consensus view among professional and patient organisations to establish the events as a national standard, to be used in all health and care organisations.
