Impact report

With the cost of living increasing, it’s now more important than ever to make savings wherever we can. As a member of the CSP, you have access to specialist services and resources that will protect and support you throughout your working life. Here are just a few ways that you can save money through your CSP membership:

Stay protected and insured 

Whether you’re practicing within an NHS or private setting, giving advice outside of the workplace or undertaking voluntary physiotherapy work, professional liability insurance (PLI) has practicing chartered and associate members covered. You can also access the professional advice service for confidential advice and support, or gain representation at work to support you through employment issues. Like any insurance, hopefully you won’t ever need any of the above, but you’ll save thousands of pounds through your membership if you do.

Case Study

The CSP guided me through a very difficult time with work. Not only was my physical health affected but also my mental health. Work had no consideration for my well-being throughout my recovery from Covid and developing Long Covid. They showed no understanding. Unfortunately/fortunately I have had to use the CSP on three occasions now. One for harassment and bullying, secondly because work stopped paying us due to no work at the hospital during the pandemic, and finally this current episode. I currently pay car insurance, house insurance, life insurance and, when going away, travel insurance. I could argue what is the point of paying for all those, they are a waste of time. Money thrown away because I don’t need to use them. We pay for all those because when you crash your car and it cost thousands of pounds, that’s when car insurance is worth it. 

And that is why CSP fees are worth it. When there is an indemnity claim, an employment problem or you need representation at an employment tribunal, then you look at it differently and the fees are worth it. If I hadn’t had the support and all the hours that the CSP has given me, what would I have done? Citizens Advice Bureau may be an option but they don’t know the ins and outs of our profession well enough, or I could have got some advice from a solicitor who deals in employment law. Solicitors may be a tad more expensive than joining the CSP!”
