ARC: Call for training funds to be ring-fenced

12 February 2011 - 2:31pm

Conference welcomed guidelines such as NICE’s on clinical excellence – but called for the CSP to lobby for training funds to be ring-fenced so that physios could meet those targets.

A quarter of members responding to a CSP survey had already seen training budgets reduced ‘significantly’, said South London steward Helen Gifford.

Associates too

Delegates also supported a motion calling for associates to have better access to training and support for their CPD needs.

‘With pots of money constantly being raided, in-service training is one of the first things to go, certainly for support workers,’ said Jerry Spencer, of the CSP Associates Board.

‘But if we can all access appropriate training, this enhances the team as a whole, which benefits the patients.’
