Is it true that you can't have an annual review without signing a consent to share? Why is that? If consent is mandatory then why do they ask you to sign to "allow" it?

I've never signed anything for the AR ( I assume you mean the EHCP review?)

Yes ehcp review. I just found it weird. It's not like we have anything to hide or anything but why???!

I was a senco and never heard of this. Implied consent for Sen case officier/ relevant professionals is fine. Sharing wider than that should require consent individually, e.g. To anonymise and share in training etc. In any decent borough the multi agency referral form should cover it all in addition.

Maybe someone tried to refuse consent to share with solicitors or something in your area for an appeal or something mad...? <clutching straws>

Is it something to do with data protection if information is being shared with several agencies?

Implied should be adequate for this, e.g. If you take your child to the GP about their hearing you don't sign a separate consent for their details to be forwarded to the audiology dept or if you go to a CAMHS appt info Sharing wit school etc will just be done

It's not an obstacle or anything it's just the for was so weirdly wordedconfused I often find this in our area. I personally think wording on docs is important but feel like a bit of a stuffy old so and so saying so.

IF you think you're stuffy... I amend things like that with pen!!

I am pretty sure I had to sign one of those. Or rather I pointed out that as ds was 18 I couldn't sign for him and it had to be amended accordingly. It had obviously never occurred to anyone that this could be an issue with EHCP being valid until 25.
I am however not at all surprised.
