BACP Pilot Launch

Wellola announce the successful launch of a Private Practice Solution pilot with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Wellola is delighted to have collaborated with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) to support their members with the launch of a 12 month online private practice pilot.

Wellola is one of Europe’s leading patient facing platform providers and offers video consultations, personal health records, online assessments, appointments bookings and secure messaging. More than 600 health organisations in the Ireland and the UK are now using Wellola; its video service has been rolled out to GPs across Ireland with the support of the Irish Health Service Executive.

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the majority of BACP members delivered their counselling and psychotherapy services face-to-face. Now, this pilot scheme has allowed a number of BACP members to test the Wellola Talk online platform and client app, and to continue to provide continued support to their clients.

Supported by the European Institute of Technology and Innovation, the Wellola system (hosted in AWS and managed by Deloitte, more on that here) offers high levels of security and aims to remove structural barriers to care via its secure GDPR-compliant patient communication portal.

Covid-19 has left many people without access to critical mental health support. The pilot will enable clients to access the vital services provided by many BACP members.

Sonia Neary, Wellola CEO, added:

We have really enjoyed collaborating with the BACP to deliver this online pilot to their members, offering vital support and care to their clients in this difficult time.

Adam Pollard, Head of Marketing & Engagement at BACP, added:

We’re particularly excited to have partnered with Wellola in bringing this innovative pilot to participating BACP members. It’s hugely important in enabling us to support our members during the current crisis, and we’re very confident that the platform will be well received by all involved.
