National Drug Treatment Monitoring System
West Midlands

The West Midlands Drug Treatment Monitoring Services is part of the National Drug Treatment Monitoring Services (NDTMS).

The National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) relates to the process of collecting, collating and analysing information from and for those involved in the drug treatment sector. The NDTMS is a development of the Regional Drug Misuse databases (RDMDs), which have been in place since the late 1980s. Originally commissioned by the Department of Health, responsibility for the NDTMS centre services were handed over to the National Treatment Agency (NTA) in April 2003. There is an NDTMS centre to cover each region, with the actual services existing within various institutions such as Public Health Observatories, academic institutions and primary care / mental health trusts. The purpose of the NDTMS centres is to obtain accurate, good quality, timely information for reporting drug treatment activity.

NDTMS website also includes a catalogue of publicly available reports and statements.

NDTMS core data set documentation is available from the NTA website.
