New GP/Specialist Medical Report for Child Protection Conferences


NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Groups (North & South) have been working with Children’s Services and PRIMIS to develop a template for Child Protection case conference reports that will be accessible on EMIS. The aim of this is to help you to share the most relevant information so that those present at the child protection conference are able to agree on the actions needed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children.

To enable you to do this guidance is included which we hope you will find helpful.

The attached template is in EMIS format and will need to be imported into the Document Templates section of Template Manager.  It cannot be opened or viewed outside of EMIS.  For practices who are on Resource Publisher this document is available in the Cumbria Referral Forms / Other Forms folder.

GP/Medical: Child Protection Conference Report

Once completed, this report can be emailed directly to the IRO Service (who chair Child Protection Conferences) by replying to the conference invite that you receive using Egress.

It is vital that all relevant information is shared and we urge you to complete the report when requested, even if you are not able to attend the meeting. You may have knowledge of a key piece of information that no other agency has.

For North Cumbria practices please note that there is a form to complete for QIS to capture when you are invited to a case conference and whether or not you attend or submit a report.

Contacts for your information

For technical support please contact PRIMIS on 01228 603751 or
