The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness


How is the audit organised?

The National Audit of Psychological Therapies is run by the College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI) and it is funded by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP).



Advisory Group

An Advisory Group was established to ensure that all stakeholders are represented in the process from the development of the standards, to the design of the methodology and the data collection tools. 

Organisations represented on the Advisory Group include both relevant service user organisations and professional bodies. More information is available on the 'Partner Organisations' page.

The Project Team

The day to day running of the audit is undertaken by an experienced project team of service user experts, psychotherapy practitioners, researchers and quality improvement professionals.  The central team is based at the CCQI and other regional or remote members are based across England and Wales. If you have any queries, please contact us.


The Clinical Lead

NAPT is led by an experienced psychotherapist (Jeremy Clarke - Chair of The New Savoy Partnership, IAPT National Advisor and NAPT Baseline Steering Group Member), experienced in national and international work on developing and improving psychotherapy practice. Jeremy can be contacted via the central NAPT team (


Regional Leads

Regional clinical leads were appointed to assist services in their area during participation in NAPT. Their roles include helping services register for NAPT, guiding services through data collection, facilitating the dissemination of the audit results and supporting services with action planning (including organising regional action planning events). They are invaluable in providing a local link between services and the central NAPT Team.
