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 include 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.
Data quality and completeness
A data quality statement is produced for the Routine Quarterly Reports and can be found in the related links below.
A separate monthly publication comprises national and provider-level data quality measures of some key data items in the IAPT data set and the latest release can be accessed in the related links below.
On 18 July 2014 the file 'CCG level monthly supplementary statistics' was replaced to correct an error in line 15 (Number of
referrals which ended in the reporting period having finished a
course of treatment, where the service user has moved to recovery), whereby service users who had not moved to recovery were also included. Provider and commissioner statistics in the release were unaffected by this error. The HSCIC apologises for any inconvenience caused.
