Oxford VR initialise ground-breaking automated immersive therapy for the first time in the UK to help NHS patients overcome their phobia

In what is a first for mental healthcare in the UK, NHS patients suffering from the potentially-incapacitating symptoms of clinical acrophobia, estimated to affect 3-5% of the population, will now have access to the latest leading-edge and clinically-validated automated immersive therapy treatment programme developed by Oxford VR to overcome their phobia.

This major service innovation will initially be available to patients in Berkshire, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, Cambridge & Peterborough and Oxford through the NHS IAPT service (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) ahead of an intended phased release planned to other IAPT services later in the year.

Oxford VR recently partnered with AXA Hong Kong and The Chinese University of Hong Kong to pilot a groundbreaking automated immersive therapy using virtual reality. Click here to find out more.
