Dear All,

For your information - Workforce Minimum Data Set (WMDS)

Guidance on the Workforce Minimum Data Set (WMDS) has been published on the BMA website and can be accessed here.

WMDS is a national twice-yearly collection of data from NHS organisations in England on current workforce figures. Practices are legally required under the Health and Social Care Act (HSCA) to provide the information requested for the WMDS. The collection is intended to allow the Department of Health (DH), NHS England (NHSE) and Health Education England (HEE) to understand the current NHS workforce picture and plan for future needs. The data collection replaces the annual GP census and is submitted through the Primary Care Web Tool (PCWT).

This ‘focus on’ guidance, provides useful information about the scheme for LMCs, GPs and GP practices and contains links to further information relating to the WMDS.

Many thanks

Nikki
