Skills for Care are making changes to the NMDS-SC as it will be replaced by the Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set. If you have an NMDS account, it will be closed on the 18th July 2019 at 5.30 p.m but don’t panic as all of your data will be migrated to the new system.


Skills for Care will email you when the system is up and running and you are able to access your account; this is expected to be sometime during the week beginning 5th August, 2019.  Please do continue to use the system until the close date. Whilst the system is down, please keep records so that you can easily update your account once you get access again.  


Skills for Care say that the new system will be easier to use and will provide better access to this valuable workforce data.  For more information, click here. 


HCPA are pleased to announce that we have been successful in securing funding for qualifications via the Skills for Care Workforce Development Fund. Our web pages are being updated and full details and new forms will be available shortly.
