Sensitive data, for use only by the MASH team, will never leaves the MASH and is only visible by appropriate personnel. Relevant data is passed on should the result be a referral for an assessment by another team: Social Care / Early Help.

An audit trail of all the actions taken (record creation, editing and viewing), is recorded so that the council can track each decision, who it was made by, when and the information it was based on from the safeguarding partnership.
