This research intends to bring benefits to patients at high risk of anxiety-related healthcare use, by using remotely delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (rCBT).
rCBT is acceptable to a patient group who are often reluctant to engage with traditional mental health services. rCBT improves accessibility by providing care in the patient’s home, thus removing travel needs and providing a confidential method of engaging with mental health care. rCBT saves patients and the NHS time and money, whilst providing clinically effective care to a seldom heard patient group.
