Detail of outcome
There was an overwhelmingly positive response to the proposals in the consultation, so we will aim to incorporate format changes for all 3 the 2018 to 2019 reports (adults, young people and secure settings).
Due to the limited time from the consultation closing to the publication date of the young people’s report, the changes in methodology will be incorporated for the 2019 to 2020 report, which will be published in autumn 2020. This will ensure that all changes are thoroughly quality assured and verified alongside the trend data.

We’re proposing to update the format of the following NDTMS reports to a shorter, more accessible format:
