Every day more and more CSP members are pulling together to secure physiotherapy’s future.

The CSP’s ambition is for all members to play a part as advocates of our profession, from protecting patient care and local services to defending employment rights and contracts.

Whether you’re part of a team of reps and active members, or there’s a workplace issue you want to address, the CSP can support you to achieve your objectives.

Supporting you to get organised

Working together for the NHS

The NHS and other health services are under growing pressure locally, which means it’s a good time to work together with other unions on your site – at staff-side, in local campaigns and with trades councils – or keep up to date TUC-led NHS campaigns

CSP organising officers work alongside regional senior negotiating officers to support the campaigning work going on in workplaces across the whole of the UK.

We can help you organise workplace meetings to talk about your professional ambitions and support a team of members to organise around workplace issues.

Organising involves simple steps such as carrying out surveys of members’ views, building a case to make an improvement in your workplace, and promoting it by creating messages and posters to engage colleagues in your efforts.

Up for it? Time to get active

CSP workplace reps help thousands of members every year, supporting physiotherapy staff, representing their interests, and amplifying their voice at work.

There are two kinds of trade union rep in the CSP, stewards and health and safety reps.

If you’re prepared to get active but don’t feel ready to commit to being a rep, you can be a workplace contact: a vital link between the CSP, stewards and other members. To find out more about the role, email your organising officer at
