This statistical release makes available the most recent Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) final monthly data (January 2015). 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.
