Frontline staff on the physio news affecting you.

  • 18 Nov 2013 - 5:26pm

    One of Sue’s big priorities over the next two years is to listen to you, the CSP members.

    Traditionally, getting your voice heard in the CSP has entailed attending meetings and committees, but the growth in social media means it has never been easier to have your say on the issues raised in Frontline – without leaving your home or workplace.

    Over the last two years we...

    One article looks at the work of a physio providing rehabilitiation in countries which are far less well off than ours (page 16).

    Another discusses the challenges for physios who trained overseas and are now seeking recognition in the UK (page 22).

    For anyone who has taken...

    Of course, not everyone gets the chance to become a university professor or vice-president of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy as Dr Stokes has.

    But we do all have a chance to make a difference, even in a modest way.

    As ever, Frontline aims to help you make a difference in whatever way you can.

    Maybe a feature will inspire you to try a new...

    It’s always a great opportunity to renew old contacts, make new friends, and learn about what’s new within the profession.

    Of course not everyone can be there in person. But you can take part by sending us your questions online, in advance of Saturday’s debate on professionalism.

    We hope to select some from these to put to the panel on the day. (See page 16 for details...

    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.

    For CSP’s director Lesley Mercer, it was the finale of her year as TUC president. She chaired...

    If you’re one of the 2,500 first year students throughout the UK embarking on a physio course, you’ll find tips and inspiration here from those members who have recently qualified, or have used their CSP involvement to help build their careers.

    Find out about the support the CSP and other student members can offer you.

    Our article on housing costs (page 22) will resonate...

    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...
