Consultation on the Health Survey for England
Article dated: 25 October 2013
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is carrying out a public consultation on the future of the Health Survey for England.
The Health Survey for England (HSE) collects data about health, social care and behaviours such as smoking and drinking. This is a chance to influence the future of this important, long-running survey.
The HSCIC want to understand:
The answers to the survey will help the HSCIC justify both the need for the survey in future and the related public expenditure to continue providing it.
They will help decide if, for example, how many people the survey covers or if the way it is done should be changed. The HSCIC want to ensure that the survey continues to be relevant and meaningful to the people who use it, and that they are meeting the information needs of users in the best and most cost-effective way.
The closing date for this consultation is 30 December 2013.
