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.

Key Facts

This release of experimental analysis from IAPT Q3 data, October 2012 to December 2012 shows that:

  • Over 100 providers were successful in submitting data and the dataset is now flowing to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) for central reporting; some of the key elements of the dataset required to measure recovery are being recorded, for example:
    • 65% of people with completed treatments had a valid provisional diagnosis.  This is important because a valid diagnosis indicates which anxiety disorder specific measure (ADSM) should be used to measure change.
    • 94% of completed treatments (including at least 2 attended treatments) had a paired PHQ9 score while 92% had other relevant paired ADSM scores.
  • There were 208,265 new service requests that began in the quarter.
  • 48,860 people completed their treatment in the quarter.
