Title:Community Mental Health Survey- response rates paper 
Overview:The response rate for the community mental health survey has historically been lower than that for other surveys within the NHS Patient Survey Programme. A low response rate leads a greater possibility of bias in survey results - hence it is a key concern for CQC and an area where action is required. Feasible attempts to improve response rates are planned for incorporation into the survey approach, to maximise response rates from all eligible service users and increase the representativeness of the survey statistics. This report is an evaluation of different response rates within particular sub-groups and potential innovations to the survey methodology that could be incorporated for future years.
