Since March 2023, the NHS have been trialling Flow in four pilots:
1. Primary Care: Flow is offered as an alternative to antidepressants or therapy via select GP practices. First results are very positive and have been published in this journal by the NHFT. Launched March 2023.
2. Community Mental Health: Flow is offered in combination with antidepressants and therapy. The goal is to improve patient outcomes, test ease of integration into CMH workflows, and provide another treatment option to those on waitlists for TMS. Launched August 2023.
3. Perinatal Services: Flow is offered to women suffering from postpartum depression who do not want to use antidepressants in Northamptonshire. Launched September 2023 and you can read more about it on the NHS website.
4. NHS Practitioners: In conjunction with the NHS Practitioner Health service, eligible front-line NHS clinicians will be able to access Flow. Launched December 2023.
