Why Chartered matters

As you near the end of your course and start searching for your first job, don’t forget the CSP is here to support your next steps.

  2. You’ll have protection with up to £10 million* of medical, professional and PLI cover, access to workplace representation as well as advice and support from the Professional Advice Service (PAS) and Enquiries team.
  3. You’ll have a variety of tools and resources for your CPD including the ePortfolio and Learning Hub, and Frontline and variety of ebulletins to keep you updated.
  4. You can build your networks and promote the physiotherapy profession by joining a special interest group or getting involved locally.
  5. And not to mention, you can even save money on everyday discounts and deals using CSP Plus!
