Course Summary

Information Sharing and Confidentiality

Course Overview

It is clear that no agency can work in isolation to ensure the welfare and protection of vulnerable young adults and children.

However, many conflicts exist between the law, government policy, public interest, human rights and patient confidentiality.

This interactive training day will provide delegates with the necessary building blocks to act legally, ethically and accountably when dealing with patient information. Learning will be case study driven.

It is essential that all team members feel comfortable and confident when sharing information. Practical guidance will be given on how to develop department specific protocols to achieve this goal.


  • To find practical solutions to difficult problems
  • To familiarise delegates with the provisions of the GDPR and related legislation including the Human Rights Act.
  • To give delegates a thorough understanding of the common law rules of confidentiality
  • To enable delegates to make sustainable disclosure decisions
  • To give delegates the ability to effectively scrutinise regular transfers of information, particularly in the context of unified records
  • To challenge existing standards of documentation
