In 2016 the Wellbeing Team became one of only six IAPT services in the UK so far to achieve accreditation status with the Accreditation Programme for Psychological Therapies Services (APPTS). As well as identifying and acknowledging services that have high standards, APPTS, a partnership between the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Centre for Quality Improvement and the British Psychological Society, provides a network through which best practice can be shared. This is a fantastic achievement which provides recognition nationally of the Wellbeing Team as a high quality service.
