A consultation published on 22 January and running to 17 April 2009 details proposals to improve information sharing around assessments and care and support planning. The Common Assessment Framework for Adults will look to enable the sharing of information, with the consent of the individual, between health, social care and wider community support services. A report of responses to the consultation will be published in the summer 2009, and the comments received are being used to inform the practical approaches being tested and evaluated over the next three years in nine local authority led partnerships.
