At the CWDP we are committed to assisting social care organisations across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin in completing the NMDS, over 250 organisations have already completed the questionnaire across the region and we thank you for your support in achieving this if you have signed up to date.

There are very important reasons for completing the NMDS-SC for employers

  • Populating the Care Quality Commission's Quality and Risk Profile for your business
  • Putting your business on the NHS Choices On-line Provider Profiles
  • Providing Local Authorities with information about you as a provider
  • Supporting workforce and business planning- The dashboards section of your NMDS shows you data and helps you understand what it means for you

 


Once you have your data entered the reports that can be produced from NMDS can help to meet outcomes 13 and 14 in the ‘Essential standards of quality and safety’ guide from CQC. Just select ‘reports’ or 'dashboards' from the main menu on the left of your screen.

Completing the NMDS also deems organisations eligible for Workforce Development Funding and the new Workforce Development Dementia Funding. See Funding

However you MUST have 90% of organisational and worker details completed from the 1st April each year to be able to access funding on an annual basis.

A copy of the employee information form which includes all the information needed to complete the ‘My Workers’ section can be found in our downloads section.click here 

The 'my worker list' report can be very useful for displaying if there are any gaps in your data.  Click on 'my worker list' in the reports section as shown above. 'Run Report' then any missing information will be clearly displayed in Red.

Like any of the reports you can export into Excel for your own use. By clicking on ‘Select a Format’ and then ‘Export’
