The experimental figures presented in this annual report provide a picture of activity in Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services and of the people that used them.
The IAPT programme is designed to provide services for those experiencing anxiety and depressive disorders and the purpose of the IAPT dataset is to support reporting on the treatment of these individuals. Locally IAPT services may have expanded to treat other psychological disorders. The information presented uses version one of the IAPT dataset, which was first reported on in quarter one of 2012-13. The report also uses the latest (mid-2013) population estimates from the Office for National Statistics
