Alternative providers of NHS services

CSP members working in the NHS in England are in the throes of hugely significant and important change.

An increasing number and range of NHS services in England (including physiotherapy services) are being opened up to competition following the passing of the Health and Social Care Act.

Learn about what the proposed changes might mean for you in practice and how to influence any change to service provision by:

  • using your staff intranet and staff briefings to keep up to date
  • making sure your views are heard about any proposed change in service provision or employer
  • making the case for your NHS physiotherapy service with help from CSP resources.

Member resources


See the Competition in the NHS checklist and CSP competition policy - both available to download below.

The TUC's NHS campaigner's guide (shown right) is another useful resource.
