2017-18 is the eighth year of the Adult Social Care Survey, which is designed to help the sector understand more about how services are affecting lives. User experience information is critical for understanding the impact of services and for enabling choice and informing service development.
This guidance sets out the actions that councils with Adult Social Services Responsibilities will need to perform during 2017-18 to carry out the Adult Social Care Survey and provide data to NHS Digital.
Any additional questions or free text boxes that your council would like to include as part of the survey (including those approved for previous surveys) should be sent for review, using the Additional_Question_Form.
