One of the first reports on the experience (Derbyshire, 1974) discussed five computer systems, without claiming that these were the only ones. The earliest had its origins in Lancashire's Children's Department. The most recent survey (LAMSAC, 1982) found that all local authorities responding to a questionnaire (96 out of 125) had some central computing facility, and over three-quarters (74 of the 96) had specific applications for their social services departments. Several of the remainder had plans in hand.
The Social Services has issued a Code of Practice (and acknowledges a debt to the local Health Authority for some of it). This goes through the system in some detail, explaining its uses, and spelling out specific misuses . Attached to it is a set of Security Rules , making the obvious practical points which will be familiar to all holders of credit cards.

The next contains some other useful items of information, addresses for example, and is followed by 'referral information' , which categorises the initial assessment (referrer, presenting request, primary problem and so forth) and notes the type of allocation. Two pages itemise all resources allocated to the client , and two more similarly cover Computing in One Social Services Department 45 aids .
