Editor's comment: corridors of power

What’s happened to this year? It seems that life’s accelerating, far too fast. Here we are, putting together our first issue in November, and with Christmas looming. Yikes!

For many physio staff, it’s been a tight year financially. There are threats of an interest rate rise, and our utility bills and household insurance policies just seem to creep up, don’t they?
 
So, it was heartening to meet members who turned up at the pay rally on 17 October outside parliament. 
 
Last month also saw the launch of the CSP’s Rehab Matters film and campaign. If anything demonstrates the value of physio, this is it. 
 
Initially promoted at Westminster, with several peers and MPs present, there will also be roll-outs in the cities of Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast. 
 
Rehab Matters, which you’ll have seen promoted in recent issues of Frontline, is a real tear-jerker. But it sends a powerful message about the work done by CSP members.
 
Make sure this message goes way beyond just those corridors of power. Why not have similar conversations yourself in your hospital or GP practice? 
 
Tell people what you can do. Never assume they already know – chances are they don’t.   Do take a look at www.csp.org.uk/rehabmatters and please tell people about the film and its message.
