Governance support

We’ve developed guidance on governance specifically for the independent sector. 


During the Covid pandemic it became apparent that some members were struggling and asked for help to gather, process and interpret key sources of information in order to make appropriate decisions regarding service delivery.

Independent practitioners looked to the CSP to help them make key decisions in areas of governance including, for example, business interruption insurance.

It is not our role to make such decisions on members’ behalf, so we developed tailored guidance which empowered members to consider all the relevant governance required, including legal and regulatory frameworks, risk assessments, infection control and consent policies.

This guidance was well received and we now plan to develop this further with Physio First to help members who are self-employed, sole traders or who run small practices.
