CSP goes on the road

10 July 2014 - 9:20am

Staff and leading members of the CSP are hitting the road this autumn to take the Physiotherapy Works message out to members at a local level.

Physiotherapy Works locally events 500x290

A series of events is being planned throughout the UK in the next 12 months to help members make the case for change in their area, to bring a greater understanding of physiotherapy services to the public and commissioners.

Natalie Beswetherick, CSP director of practice and development, is among those who will be taking the message out to members in association with the society’s regional networks in England and the country boards in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

‘All our members – from students and associates through to senior managers – must look ahead and adapt to what is going to be needed,’ she said. ‘There will be new roles in community-based rehabilitation and public health, alongside new approaches to care, including using digital technology.’

And CSP chair of council Sue Rees, who is leading the Physiotherapy Works programme, argues that although change is challenging, it is also exciting.

‘The events will not only help members get up-to-date with the changing world of health and social care and to find out what it will mean for their patients, but to help show their decision makers all the amazing things physios do. We also want to help them get the message to the public and other health professionals.

‘I’d urge as many members as possible to ask their employer to support them to get along to an event near to them.’

The first Physio Works Locally event will be held on Tuesday 9 September, in Chester-le-Street, Durham. Others are planned in Shrewsbury (15 September) and Nottingham (19 September).
