Data Protection

The following is information specifically for workers (both of establishments and individuals who employ their own care and support staff):
General Data Protection Regulations and NMDS-SC
Your trust is important to us.  We have updated our Fair Processing Notices to explain how we collect, store and handle your data. These make it clear that there will be a sound legal basis for the continuation of data transfers into NMDS-SC by social care employers along with the processing of the anonymised data by Skills for Care.
Employers can access a range of information and resources on GDPR on the Information Commissioner's Office website.
