Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) data set
The IAPT data set was developed with the IAPT programme as a patient level, output based, secondary uses data set which aims to deliver robust, comprehensive, nationally consistent and comparable information for patients accessing NHS-funded IAPT services in England.
This national data set has been collected since April 2012 and is a mandatory submission for all NHS funded care, including care delivered by independent sector healthcare providers.
How the IAPT data set is used
The IAPT data set provides a comprehensive national picture of the use of IAPT services in England and supports a variety of secondary use functions such as:
inspection and regulation
monitoring government policies and legislation
local and national performance management and bench marking
national reporting and analysis
Submitting IAPT data

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Data Quality Submission Summary Tool is designed to improve readability and understanding of the IAPT summary reports that are provided following a submission on the SDCS Cloud portal.
