IAPT’s Bonfire Night

Yesterday Pulse published its’ investigation of IAPT, it was the effigy on the bonfire despite NHS England’s protestations, see link below:

It follows close on the heels of the BBC investigation., see link http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-45895541

What is still not properly recognised is that despite over £1billion being spent on IAPT there has been no independent assessment and my work suggests just a 15% recovery, it is a scandal.
