Following up referral drop outs for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies service

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, North East London NHS Foundation Trust should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear North East London NHS Foundation Trust,

Given that almost two thirds of all IAPT’s referrals each year never begin a course of treatment or drop out before they finish a course of treatment, please inform me how many of the drop out referrals are followed up, when are they followed up and with what results.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Atkinson

Information Governance, North East London NHS Foundation Trust
