Skills for Care says online form will cut AQAA red tape

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Skills for Care says a new update to the National Minimum Dataset-Social Care (NMDS-SC) will make it easier for employers to fill in their Annual Quality Assurance Assessment (AQAA).

The new NMDS-SC function means employers can download a single page report which CSCI registered care homes, domiciliary care agencies and nursing agencies can use instead of filling in the workforce section of CSCI’s impending revised AQAAs which will be shortly coming into use.
