Mental health services provider Cygnet Health Care has announced the appointment of Sue Copstick as neuropsychology lead.
Copstick will deliver and develop neuropsychology provision at two of Cygnet’s newest neuropsychiatric services; Cygnet Pindar House in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, where she will be based, and Cygnet Newham House in Middlesbrough.
She will also oversee national neuropsychiatric rehabilitation services at Cygnet Brunel in Bristol, and Cygnet Heathers near Birmingham.
Prior to joining Cygnet, Copstick worked at two NHS neuroscience centres, based in Plymouth and Glasgow, before becoming clinical director of an independent neuro-rehabilitation provider nearly seven years ago.
She is on the specialist register for Clinical Neuropsychology and is an elected fellow of the Division of Neuropsychology UK. Copstick is also a senior lecturer in clinical neuropsychology at the University of Glasgow and a member of the executive committee of the Division of Neuropsychology of the British Psychological Society.
‘I am excited to join Cygnet as the lead in neuropsychology and I look forward to developing the clinical neuropsychiatric services at Cygnet in collaboration with my multi-disciplinary colleagues and in line with national clinical standards,’ Copstick said.
Rachael Chamberlain, business development director for Cygnet’s neuropsychiatric services, welcomed Copstick to the team: ‘She will provide a valuable contribution to the specialist neuropsychiatric rehabilitation programmes Cygnet offers for those affected by a brain injury or who have a neurodegenerative condition.’
