CSP Council identifies and agrees CSP policy and strategy.
The work of Council is supported by two standing committees - the Industrial Relations Committee and the Practice and Development Committee - and a number of sub committees and working groups.
Council meets for the last time in 2013 on Wednesday 11 December.

The Society has three country boards for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. These each operate as a large committee, drawing their membership from a wide range of interested constituencies in their area. The prime function of the boards is to act as the first line of contact between Council, its committees and the membership. As all branches send at least one representative to board meetings, there is also a channel of communication with the entire membership at branch level.
English regional networks
To respond to recent changes in health care in England, the Society has now introduced regional networks to facilitate new ways of working. Each CSP regional network covers an NHS Strategic Health Authority (SHA) region. Funded and supported by the CSP centrally, the new English networks have now replaced the old regional boards.
