The Improving Access Psychological Therapies (IAPT) data set is a regular return of data generated by providers of IAPT services in the course of delivering these services to patients. The data also includes information from Independent Sector Organisations who are also providers of NHS IAPT services.
The IAPT data set is received by the Health and Social Care Information Centre as record-level anonymised data from patient-administration systems.
