6 Consultations on outputs We continue to consult with local authorities and other stakeholders on various issues We are currently seeking feedback on the outputs we should produce from our new SAR and DoLS collections The consultation closes on 21 April 2014 We will then confirm the publication plans for those collections, for example, whether there will be provisional reports, or just a final report

7 Implementation of the new collections Our technical groups have considered queries submitted and have enhanced the majority of the guidance documents, available at: The monthly newsletters contain case studies on innovation and best practice We continue to support regional groups How else can we support you? The new returns are mandatory but we are happy to discuss any concerns you have about year one

We hope to be able to update you very soon on the outcome of these discussions.

10 Adult Social Care Data Extraction Project The HSCIC has been commissioned by the Department of Health (DH) to investigate the feasibility of extracting client-level Adult Social Care data from local authority systems We now have a web page for this project: Feasibility-of-Data-Extraction-Project

12 ASCOF Safeguarding Outcomes Measure A set of survey questions are intended to obtain feedback from adults at risk, who have a concluded safeguarding referral. The questions aim to establish whether the adult at risk is happy with the help they have received from adult social care The questions have been successfully cognitively tested with three local authorities Thank you to councils who have volunteered to take part in the pilot this summer If rolled out, the survey could provide a new ASCOF measure for future years

13 Thank you!
