Directory of professional networks

Professional networks are recognised by the CSP as groups of experts in their area of practice. 

The focus of each professional network is different and includes specific patient populations (for example, children and young people, adults of working age or older people), clinical specialties (neurology, respiratory and MSK among others), and techniques (such as acupuncture and aquatic therapy).
