We are delighted to announce that the PPN London has formed as the regional membership network for the twelve psychological professions in London; for those aspiring to join the psychological professions workforce, for experts by experience and for stakeholders contributing to NHS commissioned psychological healthcare across London. Some places remain on our workforce council so please do get in contact if you would like to join the team.
We know from the pioneering work of Thrive London, a citywide movement to support the health and wellbeing in the capital, that more than two million Londoners experience some form of mental ill-health every year, and report lower life satisfaction than the national average. The pandemic has further highlighted the challenges we face to address the inequities that fuel a range of health disadvantages. We are fortunate that there are many internationally renowned centres of excellence for health in the capital, ready to take up the proposals set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, and to plan how to transform the city’s physical and mental health.
The London PPN is commissioned by Health Education England to establish, and in future, provide a joined-up voice for the psychological professions in workforce planning and development, and to support excellence in practice. Please sign up to be part of the PPN: everyone can contribute and all are welcome.
There are seven NHS regions in England and we are aiming to create a Psychological Professions Networks in each. Enter your postcode below to discover what is happening in your region.
