Data collection will aid research into coronavirus trends in care settings

The Social Care Data Collection for Pandemic Planning and Research will collect existing, anonymised data on the COVID-19 status of care givers and care receivers directly from IT systems.

The collection will show trends within care settings at a local and national level which will support forecasting of future waves of the pandemic. It will be used to inform research, to plan better services, to deliver better value for money and to improve the quality of individual care. Click here for more.
