Be part of Unite’s lobby of Parliament on Tuesday 20 March – join our call on the Government to:

  • Deliver their promises to increase mental health funding, and reverse the continued cuts to mental health as half of CCGs cut funding to mental health trusts.
  • Secure adequate  ring-fenced funding for Psychology Services across the Country. 
  • Protect highly skilled and professional psychological roles in the NHS and recognise their fundamental contribution to healthcare in the UK.
  • Stop the downbanding, downgrading and deskilling of psychologists all across the NHS and end the cutting of psychology posts.
  • Take action on tax refund and rebates for Psychologists and other professionals that underwent training the widening access training scheme (WATS).

A clear message needs to be sent from Psychologists to legislators.  The provision of Psychology Services from ‘cradle to grave’ to the public is currently inadequate.  Psychologists are now speaking out across the country to change this. 

The lobby is geared towards asking MPs to intervene to save adult and child, adolescent psychology and mental health services in their local community and to ensure qualified and trained professionals remain at the forefront of providing these services

If you wish to attend do register for the lobby using this Eventbrite link below
