Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

    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...

    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).

    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.

    In fact, as this magazine arrives, many of you will be preparing for this year’s Workout at Work Day (6 June).

    The day aims to make workers more aware of the need for exercise and movement in their jobs. We’ll feature some of the fantastic events in our next issue.

    Meanwhile, we’re also promoting the importance of keeping people active as they enter their later lives,...

    Take a look at this issue: a feature on the contribution of physios in the care of children with brain tumours; a story about the CSP’s work with the Royal College of Midwives on incontinence after childbirth (page 8); and the fantastic news that eight physios have been approved as independent prescribers (...
