Professional Networks

There are around 30 Professional Networks (PNs) recognised by the CSP.   The focus of each PN is different and includes specific patient populations (for example children and young people, adults of working age or older people), medical specialties (neurology, respiratory and MSK amongst others), and techniques (such as acupuncture and aquatic therapy).
