People Panel's Insight Newsletter
A Service User/Carers Advisory Group was established in 2008 to involve service users and carers with the training programme. This group is called The People Panel.
The aim of this panel is to ensure that trainee clinical psychologists from the Bangor programme are aware of the needs and perspectives of service users throughout their training and that this involvement will enhance their current and future clinical practice. The panel currently consists of 9 members representing adult mental health, older adults, clinical health psychology, child and adolescent services and intellectual disability.
The People Panel meets every two months and welcomes members who are passionate about service user/carer involvement in training clinical psychologists. A number of initiatives in terms of sharing client information and service user feedback have been implemented by the programme in liaison with members of the People Panel. Meetings are attended by two or three team members providing administrative support and updated information about programme/trainee developments.
