Editor's comment: knowing your CSP

We’ve yet another fascinating range of articles for you to read in this issue.

For example, there’s our cover feature on advances in therapies in a special school and an update on the wins for trade unions in the bill that’s just passed through the Commons.
As both a professional body and trade union, the CSP plays many roles on the national stage. On any one day, members of CSP staff could be persuading MPs to recognise that self-referral to physio is a key component in primary care, or campaigning to protect pay and conditions in both the NHS and independent sector.
But for individual members, the chances are that any distinctions between the CSP’s union and professional sides are not obvious. The CSP fights for you, your job, for the services you provide to your patients and for your professional role to be recognised appropriately. It’s all one and the same.
Frontline aims to reflect the breadth of work that’s going on across the UK, in all four country offices – not just London. And much of what we report is about more than just national events – such as elections, referendums and policy initiatives. It’s about what you’re doing locally, what matters to you, and to your patients. Your experiences of what’s important can help shape CSP national strategies as they develop.
So, keep in touch. Remember, it’s your magazine and one of the key ways you can  keep in touch with your organisation and your fellow members.
