Data Access Request Service

Latest news

New, revised version of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) data set is now available to request through Data Access Request Service (DARS).


The IAPT data set was developed to collect national data on IAPT services, to support service delivery and inform clinical decision-making and encourage improved access to talking therapies for people with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety disorders.  Started in April 2012, this data set is submitted by providers of NHS-funded IAPT care via the NHS Digital Bureau Service Portal.


Monthly, quarterly and annual IAPT reports are published on the NHS Digital's IAPT webpages. 


The record-level, pseudonymised data extracts can be requested from DARS Online. 


The IAPT data has been structured in packages, consisting of total of 8 data tables, which aim to cater for different customer requirements.  These packages – which are focused on subjects of core IAPT data, waiting times, disability or patient experience – will allow customers to receive the information they need to undertake their specific analyses.
