This survey is targeted at staff that affect operational change that currently and potential could use CYPHS, MSDS or MHSDS data from NHS Digital. This version of the survey is a pilot to ensure the full version of the survey will be comprehensible and fit for purpose. Therefore as well as completing the survey feedback is very much welcomed.

Why We Are Consulting

MCDS is seeking out the views of users and potential users of all the data sets involved to inform current perception of the data sets and to guide the future direction of work within the data sets.


What Happens Next

Following feedback from this initial pilot a new version of the survey will be created to incorporate recommended revisions where necessary. This will be circulated to a wider audience of current and potential service users.
