Common Assessment Framework for AdultsLast updated: 07 June 2012 11:18 UK
The Common Assessment Framework for Adults (CAFA) is a Department of Health funded project, which tests and evaluates innovative approaches for effective information sharing, aimed to improve the lives of individuals, families and carers.
Portsmouth City Council is working in partnership with Southampton City Council and Hampshire County Council, as well as with the health service, service users and voluntary organisations in the area.
This project looks at how personal information is collected and stored, and explores new ways to share information effectively. The primary purpose of CAFA is to establish an agreed way for collecting, disseminating, recording and sharing information between people and professionals. In future, you will be able to see, own and share your personal health records. You will be able to take control of your own information.
