IAPT Workforce collection

Background to the collection

In 2016 the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health set out a commitment to expand IAPT services and improve quality, with a view to increasing access to psychological therapies for an additional 600,000 people with common mental health problems each year by 2020/21. This report also reiterated a commitment from the General Practice Forward View to move 3000 mental health therapists into primary care by March 2020.

More recently, The NHS Long Term Plan has committed to the continuing expansion of IAPT so that, by 2023/14, a further 380,000 people per year are treated, bringing the total to 1.9m each year. The newly agreed GP contract paves the way for grouping GP practices into primary care networks; these local collaborations will facilitate the expansion of IAPT into primary care and deliver real benefits to patients.

This collection asks CCGs to report quarterly on their progress against the following deliverables:

  • Improving Access to Psychological Therapies expansion trainees.
  • Mental health therapists co-located in primary care.
