Get active

The CSP organising team is available to offer you advice and support about becoming more active, campaigning or tackling any issues that matter to you. You can contact the Organising team at jointheteam@csp.org.uk

We can come and speak at a meeting in your workplace, for example, and help if you would like to step up as a workplace rep. 

Become a workplace rep

Being more involved with the CSP can help you to develop professionally and personally, and we would encourage all members to consider becoming a CSP steward, a safety rep or a workplace contact.

Our organising team work closely with your local steward and/or safety representative, who are there to help if your job, working conditions or physiotherapy service are at risk. 

If you need to find out who your rep is, phone CSP Enquiries on 020 7306 6666 or email enquiries@csp.org.uk

Workplace resources

Have you lost any physiotherapy or rehabilitation practice space? Is this a barrier to vital physiotherapy services restarting? We've developed this simple intervention, sensitive to the context, to make sure CSP members are properly consulted before any temporary or permanent changes of space are made.

 
 

Stand #WithNHSStaff and #CSP4FairPay for a pay rise

The 14 unions covered by Agenda for Change are working together for a significant pay rise for NHS staff.

NHS staff are reeling from the Government’s insulting suggestion of a 1% pay rise – a real-terms cut for people who put their lives on the line for us.

NHS pay is determined by direct negotiation in Scotland. Following campaigning by the health unions, these negotiations were brought forward and we now have a deal to put to the members in Scotland:

The pay deal in summary

  • Bands 1-4: a flat uplift of £1,009
  • Bands 5-7: a 4% uplift 
  • Bands 8a to 8c: a 2% uplift 
  • Bands 8d to 9: a flat uplift of £800

A decent deal for NHS staff is fair, necessary and affordable – costing a fraction of the Test and Trace budget.

This is far from a done deal – if we stand #WithNHSStaff and #CSP4FairPay, we can tell the Government to think again.

Moving forward, nothing is ruled out in terms of response, up to and including industrial action.  At all stages our response will be led by our members and what steps members want to take and feel able to take.

Saving spaces for rehab/physiotherapy  intervention letter

Choose the template letter below suitable to your location. Contact your CSP Steward and together send this letter to management. What we hope to achieve, in writing, from management is a date for consultation (and risk assessment) if they are unable to do it now because of the pandemic. If you don't have a CSP Steward at your place of work, contact the relevant Organiser above, and we'll assist you.
