Back in January 2017 Skills for Care completed an analysis of the National Minimum Data set for social care on behalf of Health Education England .The data was for the adult social care workforce supporting people with learning disabilities and/or autism across the whole of the South of England.
In February of this year colleagues from the Strategic Workforce Planners team here at Health Education England started to pull together a similar data set for NHS employed staff working across the same regional foot print and a similar workforce. We have used the word “similar” as the data does not identify which group the NHS providers are commissioned to work with i.e. the adult workforce or the child workforce. This is the first time that this regional data has been pulled together in this way.
