The Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists is the gold standard for registration for clinicians practising in neuropsychology and provides a quality mark for their expertise, as well as assurance that the skills and experience of an individual have been validated and are of the appropriate standard.
To join the register clinicians must undergo additional specialist post-doctoral training in brain injury and neurological illness and gain substantial experience in applied neuropsychological assessment and treatment. To remain on the SRCN registrants are required to maintain an active supervision and CPD plan to ensure their knowledge and skills remain up to date.
The SRCN allows the general public, patients and other professionals to identify those individuals who are recognised as Clinical Neuropsychologists by the UK’s professional body of psychologists. It is considered important that such a register is accessible to the public as such professionals are not currently required to register with the Health and Care Professions Council as Clinical Neuropsychologists.
