Your health and wellbeing matters. High stress levels and heavy workloads are:
- bad for physiotherapy staff
- bad for your patients
- bad for our NHS
It doesn’t have to be this way. In the New Year you’ll be hearing more about what the CSP is doing about this issue.
In the meantime, find out more about how you and your employer can tackle stress in the workplace:

Pinpoint the pressure campaign - gathering the evidence
As part of our 2017 national stress campaign we have produced a new resource pack to assist our reps to identify the causes of workplace stress and over-work.
The pack includes: a simple survey, instructions, a results form and templates on how best to share your findings with colleagues and your employer.
