IAPT event

Since March 2020, IAPT services have seen the delivery of their therapy services dismantled and rebuilt. Never has so much change happened so quickly and the response from IAPT was both rapid and impressive. Now that we are entering a new phase of the pandemic, where many are vaccinated and pent up demand may be released, what are the key learnings, considerations and choices for IAPT?

The world has not returned to normal yet, and IAPT services face both ongoing pressures and uncertainty. Over the last year, technology adoption has changed what is possible and also allowed us to collect more data than ever before.

The choice is not whether to stay virtual or return to face to face, but how to evolve and progress each service for the future, using everything we have learnt and all that is newly possible.

In June 2021 we were joined by fellow NHS IAPT peers for a morning of insightful and inspiring exploration of these learnings, considerations and choices. To watch the videos on-demand, simply complete the registration form at the bottom of the page.

  • Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust: Moving large scale psychological services to a digital model of delivery

    Clare Hurley, Head of Adult Psychological Services, Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust, shares her reflections and personal learnings on shifting a range of large scale psychological services, including IAPT, to a predominantly digital model of delivery in the past year. Within days of the first national lockdown, Dorset had shifted 300 IAPT staff to remote working, with minimal break to service delivery. What did they learn, the good, the bad and the ugly. How to engage the staff group, the patients, the organisation; learnings on cultural shifts. And where to next for this innovative service, is digital the only way up?

  • Going digital through the pandemic: the access story

    When Covid-19 hit, we had to turn our IAPT services digital, literally overnight. After a year of running a “digital first” IAPT service, I will review our lessons learned: how did digital IAPT perform in SWLSTG IAPT services, who accessed and who didn’t? I will explore what this story can tell us about the future of IAPT as we enter a new hybrid age of face-to-face and digital service delivery: who does digital provision suit? who do we need to market digital offers towards? who do we need alternatives to digital for? Finally, as we continue to wait for anticipated post-pandemic referral surges, I will consider how flexible digital provision might be used to support the fluctuating access picture.
