Comment - Award winners

It’s the awards season.

As you’ll see from several news stories in this issue, CSP members are doing a brilliant job - not just winning awards, but raising the profile of physiotherapy by demonstrating how much the profession has to offer.

It’s also a time for awards in the communications field.

Here at Frontline – and all our other communications with you via the CSP website, iCSP, Twitter and ebulletin  – we seek to provide the best possible service, geared to meet your needs.

We recognise that you have busy lives and that some of you prefer one form of communication to another – something our different channels of communication reflect.

Our surveys show that Frontline still remains the way most members prefer to hear about news from the CSP and from within the profession. But it’s not just a one way, top-down channel.

As Labour MP John Healey, speaking at the recent TUC media awards event, emphasised, communication is a two-way process.

We aim to reflect what our members are thinking, feeling and experiencing; not just to tell you what’s going on at the society’s headquarters.

Whether we’re telling you about the latest threat to your employment conditions (the theme of our cover image Under Attack), explaining the importance of research for clinical practice or highlighting a scheme to enable people to leave hospital sooner (Rehabilitation), we always put your needs at the forefront.

But as CSP vice chair Sue Rees says (In perspective) we need your help.

We’re keen to encourage lively and informed debate among CSP members at all levels on the topics that matter most to you. But that needs your input!

So, what matters most to you? I know that as physios you are busy people.

But if you have a minute, why not drop me an email and let me know? Or even a good, old-fashioned postcard?

Get involved now by sending your contributions by email to or write to Letters, Frontline, 14 Bedford Row London WC1R 4ED.  Letters should be no more than 250 words. Frontline reserves the right to edit letters. Please ensure you include your name, address and a daytime telephone number.
