Have your say on outcome measures! CORC is working with NHS England to find out which measures people are using and which they find useful.

Survey of Experience of Outcome Questionnaires in Children and Young People Mental Health (CYPMH) Services

Are you a child or young person who has been seen in a children or youth mental health service? These services are also sometimes called child and adolescent mental health services *
Are you a parent or a carer of a child or young person who has been seen by child or youth mental health services?
Are you someone who works in child or youth mental health services?

We want to know your views on the use of outcome measures in these services. 

Outcome measures are questionnaires filled in by children, young people, their parents or carers, or professionals that measure change in difficulties. 
Questionnaires are not perfect ways to measure change, but they make sure that children, young people and their families can see how they are progressing and can help services be more effective.

NHS England asked the Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) to find out which measures people are using and which they find useful. 

We will use your answers to help the NHS ensure it has the best measures in place.



This survey closes September 7th.

It takes less than 5 minutes to fill in and all answers will be anonymous. 

National Outcomes Metric - An Introduction 

The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health has made an unarguable case for transforming mental health care in England. The costs of mental ill health – whether to the individual, their family or carer, the NHS or wider society – are stark. The document stated that by 2020-21 there will be 'national metrics to support improvements in children and young people's mental health outcomes' and that 'all services should routinely collect and publish outcomes data.'

This NHS England Webinar focuses on CYP outcome measures and the work that people are doing locally and what we can learn from each other.
