Membership Approach

  1. Clinical Psychology Forum NPC was constituted as a Non Profit Company (NPC Registration number 2012/113572/08). The Memorandum of Incorporation is available on the website.
  2. Clinical Psychology Forum employs the services of one existing organisation (HealthMan (Pty) Ltd on a contractual basis to advise on and manage all routine operational tasks, as well as provide us with additional services. (Both companies are currently rendering similar services to many of our colleagues, i.e. the gynaecologists, ophthalmologists, surgeons, paediatricians, psychiatrists, etc.)
  3. Each participating clinical psychologist will contribute a monthly membership fee of R345 (VAT incl.)
  4. Each participating student and intern will contribute a monthly membership fee of R110 (VAT incl.)
  5. The Board of Directors and Executive Committee will comprise of practising clinical psychologists that have been nominated and duly elected.
  6. The Board will out-source all operational issues at a predetermined cost; these costs are fixed for twelve months and will be renegotiated on an annual basis.
  7. The advantage of this approach is that Clinical Psychology Forum does not have to invest money or resources in staff, premises and equipment, and therefore behaves as a ‘virtual’ organisation.
  8. All costs are split amongst the providers currently within the HealthMan system thus costs are kept to a minimum.
