Most parents back information sharing

Nine out of 10 parents of disabled children would not object to
confidential information being shared between agencies if it
improved services, according to new research for the National
Service Framework for Children.

The survey of nearly 250 parents, conducted by Contact a Family, a
charity for families with disabled children, finds that parents are
unhappy with the level of co-ordination between services and
dismiss confidentiality issues as being a barrier to information

The research finds that better joint working between health, social
services and education is parents’ top priority for change.
