ERS Medical to commend innovation in mental health
ERS Medical is supporting this year’s Health Business Awards by sponsoring the Innovation in Mental Health category. Taking place on 4th December 2014 at St Paul’s Hotel, London, the awards recognise and celebrate the significant contributions made each year by organisations and individuals that work within and alongside the NHS.
Our Mental Health team at ERS Medical, commented: “Having a mental health illness can be hugely challenging and overwhelming for patients. Healthcare providers must ensure that patients feel safe in the care of their providers, and are treated with dignity and respect at every point in their journey. We’re delighted to support and commend any innovative work undertaken to make mental health services even better for patients.”
“There simply isn’t enough awareness out there about the pressures felt by patients suffering with a mental health illness, and we want to make a difference by changing this in any way we can.”
