This event, chaired by Claudia Hammond of radio 4’s “All in the Mind”, is a chance for BPS members to engage in the debate about whether psychologists should have prescribing rights.

You will hear the background and work so far on this project to decide the Society’s position from the chair of the task and finish group.

The arguments “for” and “against” will be presented by panels of psychologists and service users, followed by the opportunity for you to ask questions to the panel and engage in the debate.
