Monthly Time Series for Key Measures

An issue has been identified in the CCG data for April and May 2021. This is a result of the recent CCG mergers, which came into effect in April 2021. Some providers have submitted activity under the old (pre-April 2021) CCG codes, and this activity has been mapped to ‘unknown CCG code’, instead of the correct new CCG code.

This is being reviewed and corrected data will be published when it is available.

Please note the timeseries data in this publication was updated on 07 March 2022 to include revised data, for some providers, for the period September 2020 to May 2021. The core data for July 2021 is unaffected. This is following a one-off resubmission exercise that took place in August 2021 and covered the data period September 2020 to May 2021 inclusive.

Activity

NHS Digital also publishes a wide range of information about activity in the IAPT programme within the month.

40.5% of all referrals that ended completed a course of treatment


The chart below shows the relative volumes of referrals that were received, entered treatment, ended, and finished a course of treatment in each month.


There is a degree of seasonality in these volumes, with slightly less activity around December. There is higher activity where there are more working days in the month.

It is important to note that these numbers are not based on the same group of referrals as each other. A referral that was received in July 2021 did not necessarily enter treatment in this month, and is less likely again to have ended in the month.

The number of referrals that finished a course of treatment is a subset of all referrals that ended in the month. In July 2021, 40.5% of referrals that ended had finished a course of IAPT treatment. Referrals can end having had different levels of contact with the service; these are shown in the chart below.


Each quarter, more detailed data are published about activity. The most recent quarterly data, Quarter 1 2021/22⁴, can be found at: http://digital.nhs.uk/pubs/iaptjun21.


⁴ Percentages for each variable will not sum to 100% as a subgroup was either not recorded or was recorded using an invalid code for some records.
