Adult social care management system coronavirus (COVID-19) status collection

Data Provision Notice to provide NHS Digital with data to provide insight into the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on care provider settings which use care management software


This collection supports the current and future management of the COVID-19 pandemic by capturing the COVID-19 status of care givers and care receivers by count. There is no directly identifiable personal data captured within this collection.  Further de-identification will be applied before any dissemination of the data to prevent indirect identification of individuals.  

The data will be able to use Covid-19 symptoms, testing, and diagnosis of care givers and care receivers alongside location, type of care provision, and key demographics of care receivers to identify trends.

Organisations providing adult social care services in residential (care home) and domiciliary (home care) settings in England.
