NMDS-SC Provider Information Return(CQC)

Data sharing with CQC through the NMDS-SC

Since October 2014 the CQC have been implementing a Provider Information Return (PIR) for residential care services, community care services and shared lives services. CQC have agreed that where data has been submitted to Skills for Care through NMDS-SC on numbers of staff, staff roles, employment type, turnover and vacancies, reasons for staff leaving, qualifications and training of staff that providers will not have to submit it directly to CQC.

It is important to note that:

• If you have completed the NMDS-SC and have given permission for the information to be shared with CQC then you will not need to complete the staffing question in Section thin onwards of the PIR.

• If this information in NMDS-SC is not up to date, accurate and complete, then you will need to complete the staffing questions in the PIR

• If you have not completed the NMDS-SC, or have not given permission for information to be shared with CQC, then you need to complete all the questions in the PIR.

Skills for Care has a range of resources available to help all of these services to submit the data to NMDS-SC thus avoiding the need to submit separately to CQC.  

Submitting the data directly to NMDS-SC provides additional benefits to employers including a range of reports to assist with workforce planning and access to the Workforce Development Fund to support staff training and qualifications.
