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.
Data quality and completeness
A data quality statement is produced for the Routine Quarterly Reports.
A separate monthly publication comprises national and provider level data quality measures of some key data items in the IAPT dataset.
