The Health & Care Professionals Council (HCPC) is the official regulating body for practising psychologists. All clinicians and practitioners have appropriate liability and indemnity insurance and are registered with the HCPC. The British Psychological Society (BPS) is also the professional association of psychology.
Our clinical psychologists and educational psychologists are all fully qualified and registered. Clinical psychologists are generally referred to as clinicians and educational psychologists are referred to as practitioners.
The use of the title Neuropsychologist is a personal and professional choice and not governed legally; the key requirement by the HCPC is for the individual to be working within their own competence as per BPS professional guidelines. The title of Clinical Neuropsychologist is not currently a legally protected title although they are commonly used within public, independent and medico-legal settings to identify professionals with highly specialist expertise in the diagnosis, prognosis and rehabilitation of brain-behaviour relationships.
We believe that the psychologists working in neuropsychological rehabilitation for Recolo have valuable specialist experience and skills which should be reflected in their titles.
