In your area
Our staff are working hard with reps in your area to coordinate collective responses to problems affecting members.
One example of a workplace win is from a North East specialist emergency care hospital. The management wanted to implement a nightshift model, alter staff on-call arrangements, and provide a physiotherapy inpatient service for acute respiratory patients and potential discharges from its emergency department.
CSP members in the North East run a regional network for the benefit of local physios, including organising events and networking opportunities. Find out what's happening near you and how to get involved.
