John Alfred Weinman is a British psychologist who has been prominent in the development of the field of health psychology.


In 1974, Weinman was appointed as a Lecturer in Psychology at Guy’s Hospital Medical School, London and was subsequently promoted to Professor of Psychology as Applied to Medicine. His unit was integrated into the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience of King’s College London with which the medical school merged. He retired in 2015 and was granted the title of Emeritus Professor. He also held a position in the School of Cancer & Pharmaceutical Sciences where he was Co-Director of the Centre for Adherence Research & Education.[1]

He has been very active in the development of health psychology within the UK and Europe. In August 1985, Weinman and Marie Johnson wrote to the British Psychological Society and argued there was a need for a Health Psychology Section. The Section was inaugurated at the London Conference of the Society.[2]
