Regional Networks Development Event on 25 March

File 124520Over 40 leads from across the English regions and at all levels (including students and associates) were involved. The event included a welcome from Sue Rees, chair of Council, inspirational talks from Karen Middleton, CSP CEO, and Helen Marriott, CSP member, from NHS England. In the afternoon the focus was the Physiotherapy Works programme and how the regional teams could play a part.

As an innovation to these successful days we had a guest facilitator, Sandra Mellors, CSP member and deputy director of adult services at Northamptonshire Healthcare FT. Sandra’s insight was valued by all.

While the English Network Forum was taking place, communications leads and others had a session with Laura Boyd, PR - social media officer, Nigel Senior, online communications lead.

Network impact: your role in promoting physiotherapy

A report on the English Regional Networks plan 2012/15 is going to Council in March. It indicates the impact of your work. For example:

  • 100 per cent of regional teams gather reports or share verbally important issues that members bring to the meeting
  • 100 per cent of regional teams communicate good practice and regional activity through the CSP web pages, tweets, the English Forum and Frontline
  • 95 per cent of regional forum attendees in December reported feeling inspired to actively promote physiotherapy

We can make a difference if every Regional Network and every individual does something. Ask your Council representative to outline the ambitious two-year plan for the programme that is going to Council in March.

It’s about clarifying the physiotherapy offer for ageing, long term conditions and prevention. It will include a roadshow, best practice solutions and encourage innovation. It’s designed to build your confidence and encourage you to be active.
