Editor's comment: new avenues

As we come to the end of another year, what better way to celebrate than by taking a look at the role of physios working with the Royal Ballet?

It’s always amazing to hear of the wonderful work CSP members get up to. And while the idea of being the physio for a Premier League football club might appeal to some of you, for others their career takes a different path.
 
Clinical director, CSP member and New Zealander Greg Retter has had to learn how to motivate his dancers at the Royal Ballet in a different way from how he might inspire footballers. Find out how on page 24.
 
We also look at another physio who has worked for the last six months in Sierra Leone. Charmi Lathia has been working with the only two physios in Freetown’s Connaught Hospital (page 14). There is no undergraduate physiotherapy training there and the two staff did their training in Cuba.
 
 Another physio, Seb Baugh, has moved from working as a musculoskeletal  physio to become a speciality registrar in public health, working towards becoming a consultant (page 66).
 
Which all goes to show just how versatile our members are, and the wide range of potential career opportunities there are for physios, both in the UK and abroad. If you think your work is a bit different, and that other CSP members might like to hear about it, please don’t hide your light under a bushel. Tell us about it – maybe others can learn from what you do?
 
Wishing you a happy, and hopefully restful, holiday!
