BHR - Access to Psychological therapy - Action required


A reminder on behalf of Dr Raj Kumar, BHR Mental Health Clinical Lead, & Jason Jongali, BHR Mental Health Commissioning Lead 

The CCG is working with NELFT to improve access to IAPT for patients suffering from anxiety and depression.

Recognising the pressures being experienced by primary care, the iPlato patient messaging service has been commissioned to contact patients directly to raise awareness of the service.  

Action required:

Your practice will have been invited to register with iPlato so that your patients can be messaged about IAPT; if you have registered you do not need to take any action.

if you have not yet registered, please do so using the following link:    https://consent.mygp.com/nelft-talking-therapies-sms-programme/     

Should you require further information  before doing so, please contact Mina Spatha, NELFT project lead: Mina.Spatha@nelft.nhs.uk
