Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT)
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
I am writing to request data for the above collection.
The Health and Social Care Information Centre / HSCIC (previously known as the NHS Information Centre), are carrying out this quarterly collection on behalf of the Department of Health.
The IAPT programme was established following the 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) to improve access to NICE compliant psychological interventions to people with common mental health problems, principally depression and anxiety disorders.
The 2010 CSR committed further programme funding, ‘Talking Therapies: A four-year plan of action’ (February 2011) sets out the vision for the programme over the next spending review cycle. The IAPT programme KPIs provide an agreed mechanism for demonstrating progress against national commitments and will support measurement of the following objectives:
From quarter one of 2011/12 IAPT KPIs will also be used to support the NHS Operating Framework.
Guidance and validation on this collection can be found at:
Further information on data collection and analysis in IAPT-compliant services can be found in the IAPT Data Handbook available from:
As in previous quarters, this return will be made via the Omnibus system.
