Submit data to the IAPT data set v.2.0

Version 2.0 of the IAPT Data Set has received approval from the Data Coordination Board for collection from 1 April 2020. All organisations that provide NHS funded IAPT services in England must submit data. This page explains the data you need to submit and how.

A Data Provision Notice (DPN) will be published before version 2.0 of the data set (April 2020) goes live. This means that all providers of NHS-funded IAPT services are required under Section 259 (5) of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to provide the data set as specified by NHS Digital within the DPN.

How to implement the IAPT data set v2.0

Refer to the implementation guidance available from the DCB1520 information standard webpage. Section 3.5 contains a step-by-step guide for new and existing users.

What data is required from 1 April 2020

The Requirements Specification, available from the DCB1520 information standard webpage, defines the scope of the data set, what is required from providers and how NHS Digital will assess that a provider has complied with submitting the data to meet this legal requirement.

Future version – IAPT Data Set v2.0 – DCB1520 A18md 14/2019

Version 2.0 of the IAPT Data Set has received approval from the Data Coordination Board for collection from 1 April 2020.

Update – 30 October 2019

A corrigendum has been published on the DCB1520 webpage to provide notice of corrections to version 2.0 of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Data Set. The corrections relate to:

  • inclusion of an Integrated IAPT-LTC indicator
  • correction to an error in the format listed for a data item
  • amendment to group notes for IDS004EmpStatus
  • amendment to UID for a data item

The updated Technical Output Specification, Data Model, System Conformance Checklist and SNOMED mapping documents, have been updated and published below that reflect these changes.

Pilot data guidance

Version 2.0 now contains all of the necessary data requirements for the Employment Advisers and integrated health pilots collections, so these requirements will no longer be detailed in separate specifications.

How to submit data

This section will be updated in due course with information on making v2.0 submissions, including guidance for the submission platform and an extended submission window timetable covering the transition.

IAPT intermediate Database (IDB)

Before submission, your data must be entered into the latest version of the IDB.

For IAPT v2.0 submissions for April 2020 data onwards, the IDB will be made available to download via the NHS Digital TRUD (Technology Reference Data Update Distribution) webpage only.

If you are not already registered on TRUD, you can register via the link on the TRUD homepage. Once registered, the IDB is located via the ‘Data Set Development Services Tools’ link and new users will need to click on ‘licences’ which will enable a ‘download’ link to open.

How to get help

If you have a general enquiry about the data set, contact us at enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk or telephone us on 0300 303 5678.
