Rehabilitation without error
Jim McCourt spoke to Professor Barbara Wilson OBE, one of the winners of the BPS Award for Distinguished Contributions to Professional Psychology 2000.
I interviewed Professor Barbara Wilson at the Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Ely. She is Director here, after founding the specialist unit in 1996 despite odds being heavily stacked against her. It took her three years to persuade the various agencies to join forces and back the project. ‘I had some powerful allies en route but also some powerful enemies,’ Barbara explained. ‘Things have recently become easier though.’ The Centre now has an international reputation for combining research with clinical practice.
