This issue of Frontline once more illustrates the work carried out by your union and professional body to support you and your profession.
Of course clinical issues are what makes all our members tick. Our cover feature looks at the amazing recovery one patient is making after a car crash, thanks to physio. What better illustration of the CSP’s Love Activity, Hate exercise? campaign.
But it’s all too easy, faced with the day-to-day pressures of a busy clinical environment, to lose sight of some of the other issues that the CSP is fighting for on your behalf.
One of these is the development of apprenticeships for physiotherapists.
Another is the push for first contact physiotherapists, (page 8).
And we mustn’t forget all the hard work to secure a better day deal for NHS members, which underpins all physios’ rates of pay. As we went to press, we were awaiting the results of the joint health unions’ deliberations.
Over the last seven years I’ve seen some amazing developments in the profession, learnt so much about members’ incredible work and been inspired by Karen Middleton’s In Person column. That included one on getting a new job!
I’ll soon be moving to Nursing Standard, as editor, where I promise to promote physiotherapy to your nursing colleagues at every opportunity.
