Digital Social Care Fund

How to get Digital Social Care funding from your ICS in London

Adult Social Care Digital Transformation Fund

All over the UK, local NHS organisations have joined forces with local councils, and that includes London.

 

The Adult Social Care Digital Transformation Fund will support the adult social care sector to adopt digital social care records (DSCR), also known as digital care plans, to ensure care teams have the most accurate, timely information at their fingertips to provide outstanding care.

£25 million available to Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in 2022/23

 

The Digitising Social Care Team in the NHS Transformation Directorate are making a total of £25 million available to Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in 2022/23 to support CQC registered adult social care providers to adopt technologies that can transform care. The fund will support the adult social care sector to;

  • adopt digital social care records (DSCR), also known as digital care plans, to ensure care teams have the most accurate, timely information at their fingertips to provide outstanding care
  • Roll-out sensor-based falls prevention and detection technologies to support those at risk of falls, reducing the frequency and severity of falls-related injuries and preventing hospital admissions
  • Test other care technologies based on local needs to further develop our understanding of what works.
