It highlights how some CSP members who are Muslim observe this period in their religious calendar by fasting, as well as by focusing on spirituality and good works.
The members adapt their work to meet the demands that fasting can put on their bodies, talk about the tiredness they feel towards the afternoon, and the measures all physios can take to help their Muslim patients who may be fasting during this time.
Understanding where someone else is ‘coming from’ can surely only help to reduce misunderstandings about the differences within our communities and allay many people’s fear of the unknown.
At the moment many members ponder the UK’s future outside the European Union.

Could it be something you might be good at?
