Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme

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.
The IAPT Data Set provides a comprehensive national picture of the use of IAPT services in England.
The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Data Set collects information about adults in contact with psychological therapy services.
