Adult social care provider information provisions: guidance for providers on data enforcement
Published 9th of January 2023.
In the government’s health and social care data strategy, Data saves lives: reshaping health and social care with data, we set out our vision to transform adult social care (ASC) data so that people who draw on support have access to information and can make more informed choices about their care, and for their carers to have timely data so that they can provide the best possible care.
The Health and Care Act 2022 (the 2022 Act) received Royal Assent in April 2022. The 2022 Act amended part 9 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (the 2012 Act) by inserting a new power (new section 277A) for the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to require ASC providers to provide information relating to:
- their activities in connection with the provision of ASC in England
- persons to whom they have provided such care
This power came into force on 31 July 2022 and applies to all ASC providers regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
