The Defence Medical Services (DMS) Continuous Attitude Survey (CAS) was completed in June 2015 and contained specific questions about morale.

The survey included a question to personnel asking "What is the level of morale like where you work?" 35% of respondents reported that the level of morale is either 'high' or 'very high' with 34% reporting it as 'neutral'.

The results of the CAS have been considered by the Surgeon General and DMS Board.
