1 In order to enter treatment a referral must have a first treatment appointment (an appointment with a therapy type recorded) in the year. 2 CCG is based on GP Practice. Where the GP Practice is not recorded, or cannot be assigned to a CCG, the referral is categorised as 'Unknown'. 3 As this is the first year of reporting from the IAPT dataset, only those referrals received in the year are included. Referrals that predate this point are not included in the figures. Data source: IAPT Annual data 2012-13
