Social care user survey guidance 2017-18

In 2017-18 the Adult Social Care Survey (ASCS) will take place. This survey is designed to help the social care sector learn more about how users experience social care.

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.

Guidance

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.

Additional questions

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.

The form needs to be returned to socialcare.statistics@nhs.netby Friday 29th December 2017. A selection of previously approved questions is available for consideration within the question bank.
