    CSP delegates did the society proud as they spoke on whistle-blowing, zero hours contracts and what physio staff can do to help NHS staff sickness rates.

    We examine the positive role that healthcare professionals can play after retirement, by campaigning for appropriate services for physiotherapy patients, and others.

    On pages 24 to 27, you can read about – and perhaps be inspired by – the fantastic ‘can do’ approach that has led two feisty campaigners to continue their fight for good health provision well into their retirement....

    As you’ll see from several news stories in this issue, CSP members are doing a brilliant job - not just winning awards, but raising the profile of physiotherapy by demonstrating how much the profession has to offer.

    It’s also a time for awards in the communications field.

    Here at Frontline – and all our other communications with you via the CSP website, iCSP, Twitter and...

    Those are the words a physiotherapist used when Frontline asked her to sum up what it felt like to be working on the day the NHS was born, 65 years ago.

    Of course, the late 1940s were a more stoical time and healthcare workers, like everyone else, had...

    With more than 800 members taking part – the highest number yet – it was a wonderful opportunity to showcase what physio staff are good at: motivating people to go that extra mile.

    The day helps members to trumpet the ‘get moving’ public health message.

    Whether you were in an NHS hospital encouraging your chief exec to take part, out in a factory urging workers to get...

    Not that I’m tired of London or tired of life. Just that it’s nice to get a fresh perspective on things now and again.

    Last week I visited an amazing physio team in Glasgow.

    Surprisingly, the sun shone (a rare occurrence anywhere at the moment) and there was a real sense of ‘can do’ enthusiasm in the air.

    With a strong commitment at national level to tackling...

    As with any reorganisation (and the NHS has seen many of them over the years) it means new titles, new bodies and new agendas.

    But – if you play your cards right – it can also mean new opportunities. The first challenge is to find your way around the new influencing bodies.

    It’s a minefield, especially if you’re trying to develop public health projects, where the...

    Women, it says, have borne the brunt of the cuts to the public sector workforce. Nearly three times as many women as men have become long-term unemployed in the last two and a half years – 103,000 women compared to 37,000 men.

    As the Fawcett Society report points out, a failure to address this issue will create an even more ‘female unfriendly’ labour market.

    So what’s...

    The closing date for entries is just a month off, so if you’ve not yet decided what you might do to get involved, put your thinking caps on now!

    As Mr Selbie explains in our interview, one of the key priorities for England’s new public health body is to help employers encourage their staff to make healthy choices.

    It’s a key priority for the CSP too – not only with...
