Approved Clinicians Forum 2023
- Careers and professional development
We’re offering this in person event in London on Friday 24 November.
This event is open to anyone who is an approved clinician, those in the process of becoming an approved clinician, or those interested in learning more about these extended roles (including psychologists, nurses, social workers and occupational therapists).
The aim of the event is to:
- promote understanding of and interest in the approved clinician role;
- raise awareness of the value and contribution of ‘multi-professional’ approved clinicians;
- add to the continuing professional development of current and prospective approved clinicians, and;
- provide an opportunity for professionals to network.
We're inviting both BPS members and non-members to this event, so please share the details with your colleagues.
We look forward to seeing you in November. The event will be held at:
- BPS London Offices
30 Tabernacle Street
If you have any questions please email [email protected].
