Physios from north west England will be making the case for physiotherapy at what is thought to be the world’s largest not-for-profit disability exhibition.

On Disability Awareness Day on 13 July, about 30,000 service users, carers and health professionals will visit Warrington to find out about disability services, innovations in special equipment, and witness some extraordinary achievements by disabled people.

This will be the second year that the CSP’s north west regional network has taken a stand at the event.

Among other things, members will distribute the CSP’s latest physiotherapy works for social care leaflets.

Karen Martin, an intermediate care physio at Bridgewater Community Healthcare Trust, will be at the stand, spreading the word on how physiotherapy can help disabled people.

‘Local hospitals and GPs have always been here, and as the event has such a huge footprint we thought it would be a great way to raise the profile of physiotherapy to service users and the general public,’ she said.

‘We also want to make people aware of the work that physios do outside the NHS with disabled people, whether in private practice or with charities.’
