Network achievements

Key achievements to date include:

1. Sustaining improvement in outcomes for people with anxiety and depression

  • A nine percentage point increase in recovery rates* (from 47% to 56%) maintained for two years (2015-17).
  • A steady increase in the numbers of people treated who ‘moved to recovery’ – from 938 in April 2017 to 1,159 in June 2017.
  • An independent impact study showed £750,000 of NHS money saved as a result of the Oxford AHSN Anxiety and Depression Clinical Network’s activity.
  • An estimated additional 384 people returned to work over a 21-month period
  • A detailed report on the benefits to the healthcare (and wider) economy can be found here and a longer case study here.

2. Introducing seven service innovations across our network

3. Supporting implementation of integrated network-wide IAPT^ services

  • Taking 1,000+ more patients through treatment each year.

4. Designing a healthcare utilisation evaluation model

  • Establishing partnership with David Stuckler, Professor of Political Economy and Sociology, University of Oxford, to design a healthcare utilisation evaluation model and conduct local evaluation of new integrated IAPT services.

* Recovery rate = by the end of treatment the patient has dropped below the clinical/non-clinical threshold for both anxiety and depression
