Weekly Communication 29/08/2022

Dear Colleagues

Please see your weekly overview update on behalf of the Director of Adult and Community Wellbeing (DASS) and Director of Public Health (DPH)

DHSC Data Submission

This month marked the first submission of mandated data reporting in the Capacity Tracker under the Health and Social Care Act 2022. We greatly appreciate your submissions and efforts to achieve a high response rate, with 93% of care home providers and 79% of home care settings updating their data on time. These submissions strengthen the Department’s ability to provide oversight and support to the ASC sector. Data is used to support high-quality commissioning, systems assurance, and risk management across the UK, and to help people make informed choices about their care through transparent and accessible use.

If you were unable to submit your data within the reporting window, please see here for guidance on how to register and where to access support. The key support routes are extracted below for ease.

The next mandatory submission window during which your data update is required is between 8th and 14th September. 

If you believe you have been incorrectly identified as being required to submit data, please contact capacitytracker-guidance@dhsc.gov.uk

Many Thanks
