Don’t let the NHS cyber attack stop your input to ‘Hipsprint’, CSP tells its members

The CSP is calling on physiotherapy staff to keep up their contributions to its national audit of hip fracture rehabilitation, and not be knocked back by the NHS cyber attack.

Physio staff across acute and community services, have a unique opportunity to influence service development by inputting data to the CSP’s Hipsprint audit of hip fracture rehabilitation services.

Launched on 1 May, members in nearly 200 trusts and boards in England and Wales have already registered to take part in the audit – the first of its type in the UK.

The success of the project rests with CSP members, however. After the NHS cyber attack on 12 May, members reported that their log-in details were slow to arrive and that they were, initially at least, unable to upload data.

Meghan Liddicoat is falls and fragility fracture audit project manager at the Royal College of Physicians, which the CSP has commissioned to carry out the audit. She said: ‘We understand that most software issues are now resolved and that those services providing hip fracture rehabilitation who have registered for the audit have now received their unique log-in codes.’

Léonie Dawson, CSP professional adviser and part of the Hipsprint team, is keen that physiotherapists are not put off registering and logging their rehabilitation data.

‘The audit lasts a short period, but should provide invaluable insight into the rehabilitation of people following hip fracture,’ she said.

‘It’s essential for all physiotherapy services working with the hip fracture patient group to engage in this audit to help us achieve a thorough picture.’

She added that take-up had been particularly good in the acute sector, but she would welcome further engagement from community teams.
