The PCF have been working hard to get a response from the LA regarding the out sourcing of Annual Review work/EHCP’s.

On the 11/03/2020 we emailed the Designated Clinical Medical Officer and the Assistant Director for Vulnerable People at NHS East Riding of Yorkshire with this question.

“Parents and carers are becoming highly anxious and very upset that data has been shared with a third party without parental or a young person’s permission. This has resulted in those responsible for Data protection in the LA making a statement asking parents to contact them to discover if their Data has been shared without permission.
The PCF is taking legal advice from Irwin Mitchell solicitors.
Were you aware as the DCMO that this has been and is happening? There is a particular concern around the sharing of Health and Social Care Information.
Can we meet to discuss this urgently so that the response of the PCF to parents questions is accurate and correctly informed.”

We still await response and will update as soon as we have any further information.
