Congratulations on starting your degree

As you embark on this exciting journey to become a physiotherapist, we are here for you and your every step as your professional and educational body.

During this uncertain time for everyone, we are doing our best to keep our community feeling strong, informed and supported. We are committed to putting our members at the heart of everything we do and your personal wellbeing is prioritised at all stages of your studies and career. This includes working with your university to ensure you have what you need (now and in the future) to be the best physio you can be.

A lot has changed in physiotherapy over the last couple of years (and months) with developments in digital, primary care and within the community. We’re excited for you to get involved in this changing landscape with us.

Ask questions, get involved and immerse yourself in what’s available to you, visit our student network. We hope that you will be part of leading, innovating and developing the profession in the coming years!

I wish you all the best at the start of your physio journey and hope to see you soon.

Karen Middleton, chief executive of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and visiting professor at Leeds Beckett University
