Improving Access to Psychological Therapies: A review of the progress made by sites in the first rollout year (UK) – July 2010

Gyles Glover, Michelle Webb, Felicity Evison

“IAPT Programme Foreword

In spring 2009, the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme commissioned a detailed analysis of the first wave (2008/09) IAPT implementation sites in order to evaluate whether the commitments relating to accessibility, the provision of NICE‐approved therapies and detailed outcome monitoring were progressing appropriately. Specifically, the Review was asked to consider the:
• Equity of provision in relation to geographic, gender, age, ethnicity, range of disorcers, language and disability coverage of the new services
• Profile of therapy types provided, including the pattern and length of interventions and the frequency of multi‐step interventions; and the relationship of these to presenting problems, staff grades, medication usage, outcomes (clinical  symptomatic, work and social).

North East Public Health Observatory’s report enables the programme to examine how effectively these broader policy aims have been achieved.”
