NHS to offer VR treatment
A new project is looking to offer mental health patients in the UK an innovative psychological therapy on the National Health Service (NHS).
The project brings together the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), the NHS, universities, as well as charities and companies. NIHR has awarded the project £4 million to use VR to help guide patients safely through situations that they find troubling.
The project will be the first time that the technology has been utilised by the NHS.
