NHS Digital has launched a consultation exercise for the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (APMS), that will run for over 6 weeks and close on 30 December 2016. They are undertaking this consultation to find out more about who uses the survey and for what purposes, how useful the survey findings are, and any improvements that could be made. They would also like feedback on the outputs from the survey (e.g. the report, the tables and the dataset) and any ideas you may have to improve these.
NHS Digital would like users to respond to a questionnaire https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/APMSconsultation. Full details of the consultation are available on the NHS Digital website.
This information is important to ensure that the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey is an effective use of public resources and provides value for money and will also help in the design and development of future surveys. The latest results from the survey were published on the NHS Digital website on 29 September 2016 and can be found here.
