Health Education England is currently reviewing the funding policy model for a number of professions including clinical psychology, to enable the determination of a fair, just and equitable process for allocating these funds now and in the future for all those professions.

This will include working in partnership with key stakeholders, including the British Psychological Society, to ensure the National Health Service continues to have the right people in the right place at the right time.
