Beacon UK takes root from Beacon Health Options, a mental health care company based in Boston, Massachusetts. With more than 30 years of experience in improving the delivery of mental health care services, Beacon Health Options pioneered the development, implementation, and administration of publicly funded mental health managed care programs. Today, Beacon supports over 50 million people all across the country.
Beacon UK was established in September 2011 by Dr Emma Stanton, a consultant psychiatrist working in the NHS. For the last five years we have brought international best practice of the principles of managed care to improve outcomes for people with mental health problems in the UK.
