OUR STORY

Thalamos is a bespoke software solution designed to help psychiatrists deliver the best possible care.

Our software was developed through personal experience, focus group research and consultation with our clinical steering group with the objective of supporting the thousands of UK psychiatrists who work outside of NHS clinical settings and deliver a critical service in the UK healthcare landscape.

Thalamos is pioneering long overdue change in this sector to support psychiatrists, reduce their risk, and enable better care to be delivered to patients.

Thalamos is transforming how psychiatrists are able to do their jobs. We help them, so they can better help their patients.

Reverse engineered from:

Arden Tomison

Before founding Thalamos, Arden spent 12 years building teams for investor backed businesses and working with some of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs and private equity investors. It was Arden’s close connections to the medical sphere that opened his eyes to the chronic lack of support psychiatrists receive and the vital need for change. This led him to found Thalamos to help these doctors better help their patients and support society’s improved mental health awareness with the improved healthcare desperately needed.
