Every year the CSP submits evidence to the NHS pay review body to try to secure fair pay for NHS physiotherapy staff. As NHS pay is a benchmark across the health sector it also influences the pay of members working outside the NHS.
For the 2017-18 pay round, in evidence submitted jointly with other health unions and our own separate submission we argue that falling real pay levels, constant reorganization, increasing workloads, staffing shortages, stress and frustration with the level of care physiotherapy staff feel able to provide are continuing to undermine morale among CSP members employed in the NHS. This in turn is causing problems in recruiting and retaining NHS physiotherapy staff.
Read the two submissions to see the fresh evidence we have produced to underpin these arguments, and see what health unions believe is a fair pay settlement for the coming year.
