Data flows transition manual

The major re-organisation of health and social care bodies taking place on 1 April 2013 will result in significant changes to the current data flows.

To support transition arrangements the Information Centre has developed a manual which describes the practical steps bodies need to take to ensure information flows for purposes other than direct care are handled safely, securely and lawfully.

The first draft of the manual includes guidance on the majority of the existing local flows to national bodies, as well as common local flows between health and social care organisations.
