Following the publication of the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey in September 2016, NHS Digital undertook a consultation to obtain feedback from users on this work. A report outlining the consultation findings and their response has now been published on the NHS Digital website at the following link: http://content.digital.nhs.uk/media/23995/APMS-SurveyConsultationReport/pdf/APMS-SurveyConsultationReport(1).pdf
NHS Digital reported a very good response to the survey, with over 200 individuals taking part. The consultation has highlighted the strong support for continuation of the survey and indeed more frequently than the current seven year cycle. The many uses and benefits to users of APMS are evident in the report and particularly in the many comments listed in Appendix B. NHS Digital will use the consultation findings to inform the planning and development of future surveys.
NHS Digital would like to thank everyone for their responses and feedback and invite you to share the report with your colleagues and contact networks please.
