The first meeting of this group took place late in 2015, and is scheduled to take place every quarter. Three of the main North Wales service providers who input data onto the National Database attend, including representatives from Welsh Government and NWIS, and is chaired by Vicky Jones North Wales APB Commissioning and Development Manager. This group has evolved and is extremely well attended which shows the commitment, drive and energy to resolve data issues in North Wales. Database training has taken place for providers which was well received, as well as the sharing of good practice amongst the providers when addressing KPI areas of work. Following a shaky start to the financial year in terms of data performance and as a result of closer working and collaboration, data performance has improved in North Wales, and the development of this group will assist in keeping the momentum going for the future supported by an Action Plan.
