UIN HL3699, tabled on 30 November 2016

To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many referrals to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme were recorded as ended in each clinical commissioning group area in each year since 2010, (1) in total, and (2) which related to people who were assessed as meeting caseness.

Answered on

12 December 2016

The number of referrals to Improving Access to Psychological Therapies in each clinical commissioning group (CCG) since 2010 in total, is published and available from the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies dataset held by NHS Digital. Table 1 covers Referrals received, entering treatment, and finishing a course of treatment in the year, 2015-16, counts, by clinical commissioning group. A copy is attached.

The number of referrals to Improving Access to Psychological Therapies recorded as ended in each CCG, in each year, since 2010 which related to people who were assessed as meeting ‘caseness’ is not available in the format requested. CCGs only existed since 1 April 2013. The number of people who completed treatment who were initially at ‘caseness’ is published, but not the number of those whose treatment was recorded as ended.
