Change from NMDS-SC to ASC Workforce Data Set

As you’ll be aware, the National Minimum Data Set for Social Care (NMDS-SC) is being replaced by the new Adult Social Care (ASC) Workforce Data Set service.
At 17.30 on Thursday 18 July 2019 the NMDS-SC will close. All the data will then be migrated to the new service, so account holders will no longer have access to their NMDS-SC account and the data within it.

From Monday 5 August 2019 we will start to email account holders to advise them their account is ready to be accessed on the new ASC Workforce Data Set service. Users will be able to log into the new service using their current user name and password so there’s no action for users to take.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however it’s necessary to allow us to perform a managed shut down of the NMDS-SC and to ensure a safe and successful migration to the new service. We look forward to welcoming you to the new and much improved ASC Workforce Data Set service.
