Guidance for psychological professionals during the Covid-19 pandemic

19 March 2021

This guidance, endorsed by the BPS and eight other professional bodies, says that redeployment of psychological professionals during the pandemic should not be premature, and must be managed in a way that minimises disruption to psychological therapy and treatment that is already underway.

Please note: this guidance was updated in March 2021.

The document covers five areas:

  • Keeping psychological services and psychological therapies services open through the immediate crisis
  • Maintaining psychological professions training programmes
  • Remote delivery of psychological therapies and interventions
  • Maintaining a psychological approach to prevention, care and treatment
  • Supporting the wellbeing of NHS organisations, teams and staff
