In just one three-month period, the number of people starting treatment for psychological therapies increased by more than 10% from 15 677 at the end of March 2018, to 17 273 by the end of June 2018.

Testament to the efforts of the staff, the 10% increase in demand caused waiting time performance to deteriorate by only 2% with 76.3% seen within 18 weeks in the quarter ending June 2018 as opposed to 78.4% seen in the quarter ending March 2018.
