WAG calls for providers to join web-based care-planning system

The Welsh Assembly Government is calling for care providers to sign up for its free online 'care needs projection system'.

It wants providers to sign up for the web-based system (called 'Daffodil') by February 11, 2011 so that it can complete its roll-out of the system by April 1. 

The Assembly Government launched Daffodil in October last year. The system has been designed for use by local authorities and local health boards to support joint planning and the development of commissioning strategies. The system pulls together in one place the statistical information needed to plan future care services.

Daffodil covers children and young people, adults and older people and will be of use to planners, commissioners and service managers. It provides data on an all-Wales basis, on an individual local authority basis and on a regional local health board basis.

So far only NHS and public sector employees can use the system but the aim is to roll out the system to allow access for care providers by April 1.

If you would like access to Daffodil when it becomes available to providers you should e-mail your organisation's details (by Feb 11) to:

The information I will need is your organisation’s website address i.e. the part that appears after the www (this part of the address is generally what will appear after the ‘@’ in your organisation's email addresses).

If you have any queries you can contact Susan Lloyd-Selby, senior project manager for 
Value Wales on 07812 601973.
