About Narinder Kapur

My name is (Prof) Narinder Kapur – I am a London-based Consultant Neuropsychologist and visiting Professor of Neuropsychology at University College London. I have over 40 years’ experience working in the National Health Service, most of that time as Head of Neuropsychology in a major neurosciences centre, in Southampton and in Cambridge. I have authored or edited four books in the area of Neuropsychology, including one on memory disorders, and I am past-President of the British Neuropsychological Society. I received a Lifetime Achievement award from my professional body, the British Psychological Society. I set up the first Memory Aids Clinic in the country, at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. I won an award for this clinic, for my book The Paradoxical Brain, and for my article, On the Pursuit of Clinical Excellence. I am currently writing the second edition of my book, Injured Brains of Medical Minds: Views from Within.

In 2022, I received a Patient Safety Award from the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO), the first psychologist to receive such an award from BAPIO


In 2023, I received an award from the British Indian Nurses Association for the work I have done to help NHS nurses in the UK

Clinics I practice from

I have clinics in Harrow, north-west London. I also carry out home visits in the UK and, if required, abroad.

My work

As a consultant neuropsychologist, I carry out neuropsychological assessment for diagnostic purposes such as dementia diagnosis. I also prepare medicolegal reports for law firms, dealing with issues in brain injury patients such as condition and prognosis, and with issues such as clinical negligence. I offer cognitive rehabilitation for those who have suffered a brain injury.

In addition to my Neuropsychology practice, I am actively involved in patient safety and NHS management. I have published articles in this field, I am a member of a surgical patient safety committee (CORESS) which meets regularly at the Royal College of Surgeons, and I offer workshops on topics such as preventing unconscious bias in healthcare.
