Members: give your support to 'Backing rehab'

Why we need to build support for rehabilitation

The CSP will unveil its new film, Rehab Matters, this autumn as part of our broader campaign to raise the profile of community rehabilitation.  This page summarizes how you can support our campaign.

File 202398If 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.

Currently too many patients have long waits for rehabilitation after leaving hospital. 57% of delayed transfers from hospital are due to a lack of community NHS services.

CSP members and patients know this better than anyone

#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 services. That is why throughout the local and general elections we have worked with members to encourage candidates to sign up to #backingrehab. Lots of candidates have tweeted and emailed their support for the campaign, we will continue to engage them: see the Twitter support.

Following the elections we need councillors and MPs to continue to support rehabilitation, we want our supporters to meet with us, speak up for community rehabilitation in parliament and visit some of the excellent services members work in.

The campaign is far from over, keep your eyes out for an exciting launch in the Autumn.

You can still sign up for campaign updates:
