Members: back rehab for the May elections

Join in the CSP's Backing Rehab campaign by getting in contact with candidates in the local May elections in England, Wales and Scotland. 

Why we need to build support for rehabilitation

If you’ve fractured a hip, had a stroke or coping with a long term condition, getting rehabilitation once you’ve left hospital makes the difference between regaining health and independence or having a lasting disability and failing health.

File 202398CSP members and their patients know this better than anyone.

May 2017: going to the polls

On 4 May 2017 there are local elections for all 32 Scottish councils, all 22 Welsh councils and 35 councils and 8 elected mayors in England.

This is a chance for CSP members to ask the candidates standing in their area if they are #BACKINGREHAB and pledge their support for local rehab services if elected.

#BACKINGREHAB campaign

With the headlines dominated by A&E and gaps in social care, services that help people reverse damage, reduce dependency and regain health can be forgotten. 

The aim of #BACKINGREHAB is to put the spotlight on community rehab services and to build relationships with local elected representatives who may be interested in promoting physiotherapy in the future.

And if you'd like to keep the momentum going after the elections, sign up for campaign updates later in the year:
