IAPT three-year report: The first million patients

IAPT three-year report: The first million patientsThis report shows that after the first three full years of operation more than 1 million people have used the new services, recovery rates are in excess of 45% and 45,000 people have moved off benefits.

As a consequence, there are strong indications that the IAPT initiative is beginning to not only make a difference to individuals and their families but also to realise economic gains in terms of anticipated savings to the NHS and welfare system alongside increased tax contributions.

The report also indicates that, although the initiative has made tremendous progress, the job is not finished. Further work is required to continue expanding local services both in scale and scope and to make careful use of the very comprehensive data that is now beginning to be available on patient experience and other factors to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of delivery.
