The processes for finding out about users and uses, and their views on the statistical products
The content of the Safeguarding Adults Collection was determined as a result of a review of the NHS Digital adult social care data collections which began in 2010. The review considered changes in the delivery of social care and looked into what information should be provided to monitor the most important current and future priorities. With the approval of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and other key stakeholder organisation, including the Association of the Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), changes were made to the Safeguarding data collection, as described in the consultation report.
A Working Group exists with the aim of developing the Safeguarding Adults Collection to reflect the requirements of users and policy. The group includes representatives from NHS Digital, ADASS, Department of Health, Care Quality Commission and local authorities.
Following closure of the data submission window, data providers had the opportunity to complete an online user survey to provide feedback on all Adult Social Care data collections and reporting processes hosted by NHS Digital for 2018-19
We are always interested in knowing if the Safeguarding Adults Collection is meeting your needs and, if not, what improvements we could make for the future. If you would like to make any comments, please contact us as below:
