Summary

This statistical release makes available the most recent Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) monthly data, including activity, waiting times, and outcomes such as recovery.

IAPT is run by the NHS in England and offers NICE-approved therapies for treating people with depression or anxiety. This release also includes experimental statistics from the IAPT Employment Adviser Pilot.

Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) disruption, it would seem that this is affecting the quality and coverage of some of our statistics, such as an increase in non-submissions for some datasets. We are also seeing some different patterns in submitted data. For IAPT, whilst the number of submitters remains unchanged, there is a significant change in the rates for recovery and improvement since pre-Covid-19 months.

Several measures have been excluded from Employment Adviser csv data file for April 2021 due to data quality issues. The excluded measures are: EA112, EA115, EA118, EA121 and EA124.

We hope this information is helpful and would be grateful if you could spare a couple of minutes to complete a short customer satisfaction survey. Please use the survey in the related links to provide us with any feedback or suggestions for improving the report.
