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.

Another update 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 here to help as demand for mental healthcare increases. In a time when people need mental healthcare more than ever before, our key priority is to continue delivering a high-quality service and help as many people get access to the treatment they need - all from the safety of their homes.
