Still looking for the answer?

  • Check through all the medicines and prescribing pages in this section of the website - the answer maybe elsewhere.
  • Check the specific CSP information papers relating to medicines and prescribing (PD003, PD019 and PD026) - they contain more detailed information if you want to read into a topic.
  • Check the CSP publications listing - some topics, such as insurance, have specific information papers that will cover prescribing.
  • Post a question on the iCSP medicines and prescribing network - nearly 1000 physiotherapists use that group and they may have an answer particularly if your question is practice-based or looking for service examples.
