Summary

24 September 2015 - Please note that, following user feedback, we have included some additional information in the IAPT Quarterly Activity Data File Q4 2014-15 Data [.csv]. This includes, at sub-national geographies, counts of invalid or unknown fields for each variable type presented.

03 September 2015 - Please note that a data error has been identified in the supplementary formatted Quarterly Activity [xlsx] file, and this has subsequently been removed. All data that were contained within this file are still accessible through the Quarterly Activity data [csv] file below, which is unaffected.

This statistical release makes available the most recent Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) final monthly data (April 2015) and the most recent quarterly data (Quarter 4 2014/15).

This series replaces the previous Quarterly IAPT Reports, last published for the period Q3 2014-15 and provides more frequent and wider ranging information concerning the care delivered to users of NHS funded IAPT services for adults in England.

The information contained in this release is expected to be of use to organisations delivering IAPT services for adults in England as it presents timely information intended to support discussions between providers and commissioners of services.

This information is also intended to be of interest to other audiences including the general public as it provides up to date information about access rates, waiting times and outcomes within IAPT services.
