Take part in workshops on future data collection

The Department of Health and Social Care is working on a future data collection from care providers, to replace what is currently collected. As promised at the start of the pandemic, a longer-term approach is being considered, co-developed with providers and other stakeholders.

Their aim is to engage closely with all stakeholders to identify and agree key data needs and look at opportunities to streamline current data collections from care providers, so that data can be captured once and shared with all those that need it. This includes providers, councils, CQC, and national government. This will add real value in gaining a full view of the challenges for the sector and reduce overall provider data burden.

Working with actors from across the care sector, workshops are being held throughout 2022. The first set of workshops aim to identify your data needs, data concerns, the data you collect and what data you provide to different organisations, with two more such workshops scheduled.  The first workshop took place on 19 May.  The second workshop is on:

  • 13 June at 2pm to 4pm.
