What is required to protect the public?

In terms of the court, the current guidance needs to be put into practice and monitored.  ACP-UK is happy to give advice to instructing solicitors as to whether an individual psychologist has the necessary training and expertise to be an expert witness to the courts.

For greater protection to the public, ACP-UK recommends that only HCPC registered psychologists should be used as experts, except in relation to very specific academic questions, where a chartered psychologist may be appropriate.
