The Division of Health Psychology (DHP) Scotland, the Scottish Branch of the Division of Health Psychology, is here to represent and support its members, and is committed to improving and promoting health, health-care and illness outcomes in Scotland, using psychological theories, methods and evidence.
All DHP members living in Scotland automatically become members of DHP Scotland.
One of our major successes has been developing NHS funded, 2 years full-time Stage 2 training posts for health psychologists, working on the Scottish Government's health improvement targets, which started in January 2008.
