During 2021-2022, Digital Social Care are partnering with the NHS Transformation Directorate (formerly NHSX) to run a masterclass series for adult social care providers on digital care records. In this series, we will bring together sector experts, technology companies and care providers to share their experiences in choosing and using digital care records.

We will cover:


Digital Social Care Records (DSCR) allow the digital recording of care information and care received by an individual, within a social care setting, replacing traditional paper records. DSCRs are person-centred and enable information to be shared securely and in real-time with authorised individuals within the organisation, with a person’s circle of care and with specified individuals involved in the care and support of the person.

NHSX’s Digitising Social Care Records Programme is aiming for 80% of CQC-registered adult social care providers to have access to a digital social care record that can interoperate with a local Shared Care Record by March 2024. To support this, NHSX have launched a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to support adult social care providers in England to buy from a curated list of digital social care record solutions.

These eight (8) masterclasses have been designed to help you with adopting DSCRs by sharing the knowledge and expertise of people who have already started to use these systems and answering frequently asked questions.

Who should attend?

These sessions have been designed for adult social care providers in England and are aimed at people who make decisions about the use of technology in care services. This might include:
