Inspiring work recognised at CSP awards

15 November 2010 - 4:30pm

A team of physios working under a banner close to the CSP’s heart – Fit for Work – has taken the top prize at the Society’s annual Awards today.

Six CSP members were also invited to be Fellows of the Society and two received distinguished achievement awards.

Chair of Council Ann Green said the work being recognised had been an inspiration to others – whether they were patients, peers or fellow professionals.

Awards included Enhancing occupational health and keeping people ‘fit for work’, which was won by the Fit for Work Team, based at the National Sports Centre in London.

Providing occupational health services for public and private organisations, the Team was judged to have demonstrated a significant improvement in clinical outcomes for employees and financial savings on sickness absences.

The Enhancing self care and independent living award went to Melanie Lewis, from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board.

Pamela Hancock from North East Lincolnshire Care Trust won the Rethinking the patient pathway for long term conditions award.

And Achieving excellence in learning, teaching, development or mentorship was awarded to Dr Orla Crummey from West Lothian Community Health and Care Partnership.

Meanwhile, Fellowships - awarded to members of at least 10 years who have advanced the profession as a whole – were awarded to Dr Penelope Butler, Lorraine Clapham, Dr Fiona Jones, Professor Sarah Tyson, Dr Valerie Dawson and Dr Sheila Lennon.

Distinguished service awards went to Sally Roberts, for her longstanding work for Physio First. And Rosalyn Thomas was recognised for over 10 years’ work promoting physiotherapy in women’s health.
