2018 Yorkshire & the Humber Award
Based on the research conducted by the Awards and Research Team, the rTMS Centre in Sheffield was awarded the title, Most Innovative Depression Therapy Clinic 2018 on SME News Yorkshire & the Humber Enterprise Awards 2018, for their provision of depression therapy which is not reliant on pharmaceuticals.
Despite being in use since 1985 and approved by major medical associations, rTMS remains a lesser-known treatment for those suffering from depression. However, by introducing this form of treatment via its private clinic in the Yorkshire & the Humber region of Northern England, Mr. Nima Amiri (Practice Manager) and Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr. Salim Matta, are introducing another depression support mechanism to a region with the need of more services in this field.
