We Help The NHS & Providers

Are you struggling to meet the increasing demands for mental health treatment and failing to meet your targets? Many Trusts are having difficulty, for many different reasons, be it due to premises, staff recruitment, financial or rigid operating hours. Dr Julian can help with all these issues and more.

Who and What is Dr Julian?

We are a secure Web App platform and mobile app that enables patients to connect with vetted psychotherapists/Psychologists and have appointments online either by video or instant messaging using phones, tablets or laptops/computers

We are currently providing our service to the NHS through Provider Companies but can operate directly with Mental Health Trusts.

Whilst we presently provide IAPT services for the NHS we can also support Secondary care services such as Child and Adolescent services.

You can use our vetted psychotherapists/psychologists and/or your own therapists without taking them away from their NHS work. Because our service enables therapists to work from home they can work additional hours of their choice to earn additional income, providing an out of hours service, to meet the increasing need for patient choice.

If you do not have a video/instant messaging service for your patients you can also licence our technology to provide an in-hours service using your own staff.

Evidence 

There is a growing evidence base supporting the use of tele-psychiatry and therapy appointments. A review of over 200 randomised controlled trials of tele-therapy/psychiatry appointments delivered via video link showed:

  • Equivalent clinical outcomes to in room therapy
  • Better patient satisfaction.

What the Patients Think!

This was my first time to try a session with a therapist online, and although I wasn't sure how it would feel, I wanted to try it because the idea of speaking to someone from home without having to track to London was just soooo appealing! And I can honestly say, it was so good. I had my cup of tea in my favourite mug with my slippers on, I cried and my mascara ran and nobody was there to see me except the kind therapist! I didn't have to get in the car or on the tube afterwards with red eyes, I just lay down on my bed and tried to take it all in.
