Co-operation, collaboration and data sharing between different public sector agencies at a local level is perhaps the single most important key to identifying interventions, improving efficiency and designing predictive services that ultimately help to improve outcomes for all citizens.
There is clear a need for local public services (police, ambulance, hospitals fire and rescue, education authorities, social services) to work in close partnership with each other and the communities they serve to protect the public, prevent crime, take care of the vulnerable and improve quality of life.
This roundtable discussion will convene interested members in order to inform the production of a white paper on this issue. This paper will try to identify best practice, tools and resources for creating an environment that supports and drives effective multi-agency collaboration and enables the technology to succeed. It will explore the current obstacles and perceived challenges to greater data sharing, and will make the case for better integration via a series of case studies of best practice.
