Excellent news this month from Inclusion Thurrock (IAPT) service, whilst only being part of Inclusion for just over a year, it has gone from strength to strength. They have achieved over the 15% access rate and 50% recovery rate alongside meeting the 6 and 18 week waiting time standard, the best performance in the local area. This is a remarkable feat for the first year of operation and it was fantastic that the team could receive that feedback directly from the senior team of the Trust. They were visited by he Chair, Martin Gower and the Chief Exec Neil Carr alongside the Director of psychological services Dr Rachel Lucas and accompanied by Head of Inclusion, Howard King.
