Guidance on the recording of neuropsychological testing in medicolegal settings

04 June 2021

These guidelines are aimed at qualified clinical neuropsychologists however, the guidance may be applicable to a wider audience including Clinical, Counselling, Forensic and Occupational Psychologists who routinely employ neuropsychological or cognitive tests as part of their medicolegal practice.

The core purpose of this document is to provide guidance in a medicolegal context, with patients in litigation.

The guidance is not intended to influence NHS clinical practice.

However, brain trauma patients will generally present in multiple clinical settings and clinicians assessing patients in an NHS setting will have access to this guidance.

We therefore believe that psychologists working outside the medicolegal field may find the contents of this document of interest.
