Aims of Consultation

NHS Digital is 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.

We would also like your 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.

This information is important to ensure that the survey is an effective use of public resources and provides value for money. It will also help in the design and development of future surveys.

You are invited to complete a short questionnaire which will help NHS Digital and the Department of Health to make decisions about future surveys.

Further information about the consultation is available in the pdf icon The Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey (APMS): User Consultation [229kb]and the consultation questionnaire can be completed online here

If you are unable to complete the questionnaire online you can request a paper version by emailing
