Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

    While it’s attended by only a small proportion of the 56,000 members out there, it’s interesting to see the level of engagement with the debates that take place.
    One example I overheard in the coffee shop was a group of three young men excitedly discussing Professor Sir Muir Gray’s presentation. (You can read more on page 16.) But the thrust of what he said was...

    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...

    Increasingly, those pages tell the story of how CSP members are taking action locally to further the physiotherapy profession’s aims. While there is now a little more support from CSP staff, particularly for the English regional networks, individual members’ enthusiasm and can-do attitude is as strong as ever.

    I think it’s linked to all those years at school or college when the onset of September signalled another opportunity to begin again, turn the page and perhaps ‘try harder’. 
    This issue of Frontline will be distributed to every student starting a physiotherapy degree in the coming weeks. To all of you, we say welcome to your magazine. As every member of a...

    Sadly, it was not the only emergency incident triggered by terrorist action in recent months, with others on Westminster and London bridges, and at Finsbury Park.
    It’s hard when a routine day at work turns into something horrific. But NHS staff are trained to deal with emergencies and responded professionally to each incident. Going one step beyond the call of...

    NHS England has announced a consultation on restricting the prescribing of ‘low value’ treatments. While many reports of that announcement focused on homeopathy, the consultation covers much more, including 17 other specific treatments recommended for restriction. It also includes an apparent intent to remove NHS funding for prescriptions of remedies that are...

    Parkour potential

    With a remit to develop a ‘new model of care’, Live Well Leeds has the headspace to think differently. As a result, we got in touch with Level Up – a local company specialising in teaching younger people Parkour (free running). Together, we developed a version of Parkour that would be suitable for older people with long-term conditions such as chronic obstructive...
