Strategic Health Authorities each have a Primary Care lead with a special interest in what IAPT can achieve for patients in primary care settings.
GPs warmly welcome IAPT services as they extend the range of interventions and the choices available to their patients.
Close links between GP practices and IAPT services are valued in the pilot sites and a number of resources are in development to support Practice Based Commissioning and supporting New Ways of Working in Primary Care.
