Notes and data sources

  1. Statistics were produced from submissions made using the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) dataset. Find more information about the IAPT dataset.
  2. Map boundaries are displayed by clinical commissioning group (CCG)


All values are rounded to the nearest 5, except values that are 4 or lower (including 0) which are suppressed to prevent the identification of individuals.

Figures produced by aggregation in this report may differ from those published as this report calculates totals as the sum of rounded figures.

Suppressed values appear as blank cells in tables and are not counted in rounded totals.

Percentages are based on pre-suppressed values and rounded to zero decimal places, except where the numerator is 0-4, where the percentage is suppressed.
