Staffing Evaluation System for Leaders

The SESL decision support tool is designed to help you develop your skilled judgement, evaluation and critical thinking.

Primarily for use by physiotherapy managers and team leaders, it is available to all CSP members working in any sector or setting, including stewards. 

It can be used reactively or proactively to review issues relating to safe and effective staffing levels.

Ready for market

Increasing demand for healthcare and financial restriction means that it is essential for physiotherapy services to be able to demonstrate that they are cost effective.

Cost effectiveness is calculated by comparing the cost of an intervention with its clinical effectiveness to establish the extent to which it is providing value for money. This information can be used by commissioners to decide how to allocate limited healthcare resources.

Job planning: a tool to support safe and effective care

The concept of job planning for physiotherapists and physiotherapy support workers was introduced by NHS Improvementas part of their drive to reduce variation and improve productivity in NHS allied health profession (AHP) services.

A job plan is document that captures all the activities you undertake as part of your role and how much of your contracted hours you should be spending on them.

The amount of time spent on each activity will depend on your particular role and your local service needs. There is no ‘one size fits all’ job plan.
