Helen Spreadbury

Senior ICT/IMS Manager

  • Background
  • Systems and Solutions
  • The St Helens Vision for Integration
  • Demonstration
  • Response to ECM Agenda
  • Serious Case Reviews
    • Victoria’s Story
    • Baby Peter
  • Ofsted - Learning Lessons from Serious Case Reviews 09/10, reviewed 147 cases, 194 children

“Most of the serious case reviews identified sources of

information that could have contributed to a better

understanding of the children and their families. They also

highlighted concerns about the effectiveness of assessments

and shortcomings in multi-agency working” page 5

systems and solutions
Systems and Solutions
  • CAF – live in paper format April 2007
  • ONE, V3 & V4 - Capita
  • eStart - Capita
  • ICS – Liquid Logic
  • eCAF – Liquid Logic
  • Early Years – Tribal
  • EDMS – Opentext
  • Plus; YOS, Connexions, Health etc etc etc

Single View (alongside eCAF) – aims to link disparate databases/systems to form a composite view of a child's record


  • To support
    • The development of a Team around a Child/Family (TAC/TAF)
    • Information sharing
    • Locality & multi agency working
    • Early intervention and support
    • The role of the Lead Professional
    • Tells a child’s story from universal services to early intervention and beyond into statutory assessments if required

Potential Benefits

  • Cost Savings?
  • We all have to do this anyway so how can the technology can support this?
  • Leaner structures require more effective use of technology tools
  • St Helens moving towards earlier and more effective early intervention
  • eCAF is key to this approach, better, earlier interventions should reduce
  • more costly interventions ie: LAC placements
  • Earlier and more effective information sharing does ensure a better use of
  • limited resources - collect once use many times
  • Supports Munro’s view that the assessment should follow the child
  • (interim report 2011)

Practitioners have read-only access to a ‘single view’ of a child’s record

the single view solution
The Single View Solution
  • It is scalable, in that we can bolt on other databases ie: Youth Offending Health etc
  • It is secure
  • Access is only granted to nominated professionals who have completed all necessary background checks and screening for their employment
  • Two factor authentication for external access
  • Security certificate
  • No sensitive personal data is held on Single View
  • Privacy notices and information sharing agreements
  • eCAF Consent driven
  • Highest level of security is always applied ie: if shielded in ICS then the entire record of that child is shielded in Single View
  • Security based on ‘need to know’ principles
  • Review completed by external Data Protection/Caldicott expert and signed off as good practice
