This means that, in principle, a clinical psychologist who has been removed from the register for serious professional misconduct could still obtain employment as a clinical psychologist although in practice most employers would not condone this. Statutory registration, which remains the goal of the BPS, would certainly prevent re-employment in the NHS as a clinical psychologist, but it remains to be seen how far it would prevent the offering of services as a private practitioner.

First, courses need to provide a broader-based academic programme than has often been the case, and one which distances itself from a reliance on psychiatric diagnosis and takes full account of the social and environmental factors repeatedly shown to be associated with psychological distress.
