Former clinicians now working as directors in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors gave the advice at an event organised this week in London as part of the CSP’s Physiotherapy Works programme.

CSP chief executive Karen Middleton, who chaired the event (pictured), said this was just the start of a much wider debate with all members.

‘These influential physios believe the time has come for the profession,’ she said. ‘They argue we are seeing a fundamental shift from treating illness and disability, to enabling health and wellbeing. This fits perfectly with the skills and ethos of physiotherapy.’

All CSP members can join the debate though Physiotherapy Works Locally events and by attending Physiotherapy UK 2014 in Birmingham in October, which focuses on the living longer, living well theme.
