In the latest issue you can read about physiotherapy for prisoners with COPD; understand the challenges facing members with disabilities; and find out why CSP stewards are so good for you. Phil Gray explains why you should never say ‘bed blocking’ and – if you’re the wrong side of 50 – you’ll be interested in our article on how to prepare for retirement.
