Council elects new leadership

13 October 2011 - 3:07pm

CSP council’s new office-holders took their places last week, after council members voted on 8 October.

File 102082Helena Johnson is now chair of council, with Sue Rees as vice-chair.

Dr Johnson was elected chair, taking over from Ann Green, who proposed her.

Having been vice-chair for the past two years, Dr Johnson said she had gained a deeper understanding of the chair’s role.

Assistant background

Dr Johnson started her physiotherapy career as an assistant before qualifying as a physio.

After 20 years working in the NHS, she is now principal lecturer in physiotherapy and health studies at York St John University.

‘I am committed to ensuring that the society best serves the whole membership, to improve the quality of physiotherapy provision for all service users across all sectors,’ she said.

Sue Rees, deputy head of physiotherapy services for Cardiff and Vale NHS trust, has been a CSP member for 26 years.

‘The work of the CSP as a professional body, as well as that of its members, is underpinned by professional practice, learning and development, which incorporates both education and research,’ she said.

Equipped to meet challenges

'There are real challenges ahead,’ Ms Rees added, ‘but I believe we are equipped to meet them.'

Welcoming the new office-holders, CSP deputy chief executive Sue Browning added that there had been extensive tributes to former chair Ann Green, who would retain an active presence.
