Significant harm to children and young people or serious harm to adults can arise from a number of circumstances
It is not restricted to cases of extreme physical violence
Confidential information can be shared without consent if justified in the public interest
It is good practice to seek consent and/or discuss concerns, unless this would increase the risk Practitioners must:
Always consider referring concerns to social care or the police
Keep the individual’s safety and well-being as the overriding consideration in making any such decisions
Seek advice if unsure what to do Sharing information where there are concerns about significant or serious harm The right to a private life can be legitimately interfered with where it is in accordance with the law and is necessary, for example:
for the prevention of crime or disorder
for public safety
for the protection of health or morals
for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others
if a child or young person is at risk of significant harm, or an adult is at risk of serious harm The Human Rights Act 1988 Where there is a confidential relationship, the person receiving the confidential information is under a duty not to pass on the information to a third party. However this duty is not absolute and information can be shared without breaching the common law duty if:
The information is not confidential in nature
The person to whom the duty is owed has given explicit consent
There is an overriding public interest in disclosure
Sharing is required by a court order or other legal obligation The Common Law Duty of Confidentiality Before disclosing personal information at least one ‘Schedule 2’ condition must be met. When information is sensitive, one or more schedule 3 conditions must also be met. The Data Protection Act 1998 Practitioners must weigh up their decision – whether it is to share or not - and record the reasons for it Evidence of, or reasonable cause to believe, that a child is suffering or at risk of suffering significant harm; or an adult is suffering or at risk of suffering serious harm
To prevent significant harm to children or serious harm to adults Confidential information Can be shared if.. authorised by the person who provided it or to whom it relates personal, sensitive, not already in the public domain and shared in confidence Confidential information is.. Can be shared unauthorised if justified in the public interest..
