IAPT pilot collections

We currently maintain two pilot data collections for IAPT services, which are submitted alongside the core IAPT Data Set by those services involved in the pilots.

Employment Advisors in IAPT Pilot

As part of the Spending Review 2015, investment in Employment Advisors (EA) in IAPT is being taken forward by the Work and Health Unit (WHU) – a collaboration between the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC).

The investment, used to increase the number of EAs embedded in IAPT services, will support more people with depression and anxiety to receive integrated psychological therapy and employment support. The EA in IAPT pilot will provide skills-based interventions, information and practical support to help people receiving IAPT services to remain in, return to, and find work.

Pilot sites have been selected on a voluntary basis to submit additional data, alongside the mandated IAPT Data Set, in relation to employment and benefits.

The additional data collection started from the submission window which opened on 6 October 2017.

IAPT integrated services pilot programme

Following the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health, and subsequent implementation plan, NHS England is committed to increasing access to integrated evidence-based psychological therapies for people with anxiety/depression in the context of long term physical health conditions (LTC) and/or persistent and distressing Medically Unexplained Symptoms (MUS). 

To support this, the IAPT programme has commissioned a pilot data collection and analysis of the impact of 'Integrated IAPT' services co-located in and integrated with, physical health services, focused on people with anxiety/depression in the context of LTC and/or MUS.

Participating IAPT pilot sites submit additional data alongside the mandated IAPT Data Set.

Read more about the early implementers pilot on the NHS England website.
