Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

  • 17 Nov 2014 - 12:27pm

    Everyone encounters annoying behaviour every day. The bored look on the face of a member of staff at the checkout. The GP receptionist who asks personal questions about your condition in an open plan area. The bus driver who lurches to a stop, throwing you off balance.

    In a clinical setting, where illness and medical conditions are routine, a culture can develop that loses sight of...

    Their aim? To draw directors’ attention to how physiotherapy can help vulnerable older people, primarily in reducing the risk of falling.

    Sadly, it’s not often that the worlds of health and social care come together in this way. But now and again there are chinks of daylight – those light bulb ‘now I get it’ moments – when the two worlds start to talk the same language.

    We’ve just come through the political conference season with glowing colours, as the item on page 12 shows. To have physiotherapy mentioned by two major parties is a coup and reflects the hard work going on behind the scenes on members’ behalf.

    Meanwhile, some of you have been celebrating Older People’s Day – as our front cover of an initiative on a London bus shows. Nothing speaks...

    You may know you improve your patients’ lives, or help with their mobility or function. But putting an exact figure on what that means financially is difficult.

    On 1 October, many CSP members are going to be involved in local initiatives to celebrate Older People’s Day. It’s all part of our bigger campaign to demonstrate that Physiotherapy Works.

    To coincide with the day, the...

    Many of you are facing challenges in your workplace as your organisation struggles to provide the best quality services on a tight budget. In this climate, it’s so important to know how to respond to that pressure: to adapt and survive.

    So the launch this month of the first CSP Physiotherapy Works Locally event, in Chester-le-Street, County Durham, was timely (page 10).

    For those of you starting out on your physio career and reading Frontline for the first time, I hope this will be the start of a long relationship with the CSP. As the shop window of all that’s great in physiotherapy, ...

    We all need a chance to recharge our batteries now and again; to take stock and to find the space, mentally, to be inspired by something new.

    For CSP chief executive Karen Middleton a visit to the Glasgow games was a real battery-charger.

    She was inspired by the goodwill of the amazing...

    ‘Bright, engaging, with upbeat photos of members and... an inclusive feel’ was how the judges described it.

    Of course it’s always great to win something and the team here are delighted at the news.  But it also underlines the importance of the CSP communicating effectively with members, and in helping you, in turn, to become more involved in your society – in ways that work for...

    After conducting a painstaking comparative study in 11 developed countries, researchers based at the Commonwealth Fund in Washington DC concluded that the UK provides the best healthcare system.

    On cost – so often the yardstick used to beat the heads of managers and practitioners alike – the NHS forks out an average of £2,...

    It was a wonderful opportunity to highlight your work, while drawing attention to the need for workers to take a break and get some exercise.

    You can look at a selection from the 230 or so events that took place on 6 June on pages 16 to 17.
