The Evidence Application Team is inviting you to share your experience of how you currently use NDTMS management reports. We are looking to improve the ways we help you use NDTMS data, and we would initially like to understand which reporting products you currently use and more specifically, what data you routinely focus on within those products. The survey can be found here: https://consultations.dhsc.gov.uk/628e16a604fe5221ee3fb456
This is the first of several consultations about NDTMS reports, but please bear in mind that this consultation is about the reports and the data contained within them and not about the NDTMS core dataset, which is consulted on separately every 2 years.
We encourage you to share this survey with other NDTMS report users, particularly if you are not the main user of the data in your organisation. To do so please copy and paste the following link:
The survey will be open until the end of August. It will take about 15 minutes to complete. We hope that you take the opportunity to help us shape NDTMS reporting in the future.

We have made some improvements to the drug commissioning support packs following user feedback. We have added instructions to enable users to download the report and use offline (in your web browser use “Save page as” with file type “Web Page, complete”). We have also made improvements to the layout throughout the report including fixing a mislabelling in the criminal justice pathways offence type section (table 8.10.2 in the drugs pack).

There has been a number of positive changes made to the NDTMS.Net secure area. From today, you can access a larger number of periodic NDTMS reports produced by OHID from the newly titled “NDTMS reports” page. There is an improved menu screen making navigation easier. The NDTMS reporting timetable is also now more accessible, visible in the main banner alongside the NDTMS reports page. The timetable will be updated before the end of March with release dates for reports covering the 2022-23 reporting period. The criminal justice single point of contact (SPOC) directory is also now available from the secure area. The SPOC is a key tool in supporting the continuity of care objective within the Drug and Alcohol treatment sector as detailed in the Government’s new UK 10 Year Drug Strategy . We believe this directory will support and help develop enhanced criminal justice pathways into treatment and achieve improved health and crime reduction outcomes. The SPOC is also available on the main banner at the top of the page.

We are pleased to let you know that the latest young people commissioning support packs are now available on NDTMS.net (https://www.ndtms.net/CommissioningSupportProducts). They have been provided as a resource to assist with local needs assessments, service planning and recommissioning as well as a useful summary of activity over the last 12 years, where shown. They use data from NDTMS as well as other data sources such as hospital admissions, looked after children and school exclusions. The main areas covered in the NDTMS data are client profiles and demographics, education and employment, health, vulnerabilities and outcomes. If you have any questions on these packs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
