Ieso's response to COVID-19

While the NHS has diverted efforts into managing Covid-19, we want to ensure the UK’s mental health service is supported.

With normal pathways to treatment likely to be disrupted, Ieso is open, increasing online therapy capacity, and here to help partners and patients.


A message from our CEO

Our CEO, Nigel Pitchford’s letter to partners reinforces that we are not only open and treating our patients as normal, but we are ramping up our capacity so we can support getting new patients into treatment quickly – all from the safety of their homes.
