Establishment of information systems for NHS Services: Improving Access to Psychological Therapies data collection Directions 2018

NHS England has directed NHS Digital to establish and operate a system for the collection of Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data. Establishment of information systems for NHS Services: Improving Access to Psychological Therapies data collection Directions 2018

Purpose

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme began in 2008 and has transformed treatment of adult anxiety disorders and depression in England. Over 900,000 people now access IAPT services each year, and the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health committed to expanding services further, alongside improving quality.

The data collected by NHS Digital will be used to measure the success of the Adult Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme.
