How to get funding for Digital Care Planning from your local ICS.
Access to funding for digital care planning has never been easier! The NHS Transformation Directorate has established a £25 million funding pool specifically allocated for Integrated Care Systems (ICSs). This financial resource aims to assist CQC registered social care providers in adopting technology, with a particular focus on the following areas:
- Implementation of digital social care records (DSCR), also known as digital care plans.
- Deployment of sensor-based falls prevention solutions.
- Exploration and testing of new care technologies.
The ICSs are segmented into different regions, each with varying funding priorities for technologies. Nevertheless, one common aspect across all ICSs is their provision of funding for the implementation and adaptation of digital social care records.

The specific amount differs, as some ICSs provide full coverage for implementation, while others offer funding up to a certain limit.

Does funding cover devices and equipment?
Yes! It’s essential to have a precise understanding of the investment required. This entails obtaining an accurate quote from your DSCR supplier. Remember to factor in additional expenses like required tablets/laptops, WIFI, and implementation costs (e.g. training days).
