Please provide answers to the questions below, for the previous five financial years (2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17) and your agreed budget for financial year 2017-18.  

The following questions all relate to services for adults (aged 18-65) – this excludes CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services), CYP IAPT (Children & Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) and Early Intervention Services (EIS).   

1. What was the total amount of money spent (£) on all psychological therapies (any type, across primary, secondary care and tertiary care) by your CCG?

In 2016/17 NHS Calderdale CCG spent £1,395,962 on IAPT services for adults and £1,068,704 on secondary care psychology services.

2. What was the total amount of money spent (£) on IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) services by your CCG?

Please see response to Q1.

3. How much of this total spend on IAPT was made up of central-government funding earmarked for IAPT? Please answer as an amount of money (£).

The amounts paid to the CCG are included in the amounts spent on IAPT provided in response to questions 1 and 2 above.

4.   Does your CCG commission primary care psychological therapies other than IAPT? If so, what was spent (£) on these? Please specify.

We provide grant funding to voluntary sector organisations for counselling services as follows:

Women’s Centre: £24,500

Relate: £19,500

5.   What was the total amount of money spent (£) on all secondary care (non-IAPT) psychological therapies by your CCG?

Non-IAPT in secondary care is provided as part of packages of care and therefore the spend is not available to this level of detail.

6.   Please provide a breakdown of the type of secondary care (non-IAPT) psychological therapy (e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, family therapy, dynamic psychotherapy etc) and the amount of money spent (£) on each type of therapy by your CCG.  

The amount of money spent on different types of therapy is not available.

Dialectical behavioural therapy is not available in Calderdale; however, the services deliver other types of therapy, for example, cognitive behavioural therapy and dynamic psychotherapy.

7.   Does your CCG commission any other more specialised (e.g. tertiary care) psychological therapies? If so, what was spent (£) on these? Please specify.

The CCG does not commission more specialised psychological therapy; however, if requests for specialized therapies are received they are managed through the Individual Funding Request (IFR) process.
