Newcastle City Council - Children with Disabilities

The Children with Disabilities system helps to improve the delivery of care to children by supporting multi agency business processes and allowing Health, Social Services and Education professionals to share information, according to agreed protocols.

The system is being used by professionals from Health, Social Services and Education. In all there are about twenty agencies involved, these include: Children’s Community Nurses, Education Psychology, Physiotherapy, CWD Social Work team and SENTASS.

The system allows professionals involved to:

  • Make electronic referrals
  • Share an electronic children’s record accessible by all involved agencies
  • Have real time case management
  • Use secure messaging
  • Store scanned records against a child’s records
  • Record multi agency assessments
  • Record the outcome of a child review
  • Create multi agency care plans
  • Access a full audit trail of the child’s record
