Rehab Matters

The CSP's #RehabMatters campaign highlights the importance of community rehabilitation.


[The film] is brief, moving and brutally effective, it’s about us. You, me, our future. Do we want independence and quality of life? Or the alternative?

Melanie Reid, The Times

Our film #RehabMatters contrasts the fictional stories of two patients after they leave hospital with one receiving physiotherapy and the other missing out.

It’s part of our campaign to improve access to rehabilitation services across the UK.

Too often, patients leaving hospital are unable to access high-quality rehabilitation services to continue their recovery and regain their independence, with devastating consequences for some.

With your help, we can shine a spotlight on an area of healthcare that is often overlooked and ensure that no-one misses out.
