Frontline - 7 August 2013

This issue looks at the role retired people can play in helping to promote better healthcare services – and at the impact of working longer for physios who’ll have to wait longer than they might have expected before they are entitled to an NHS pension. (See In Perspective).

Alongside that we look at the role physios can play in helping to improve sickness absence rates and to improve the health and wellbeing of NHS staff.
