Is your service being impacted by loss of physiotherapy space or proposed workplace changes? For example, this may include the closure or repurposing of your gym or admin space.
In a survey of nearly 500 CSP members in May 2023, 96 per cent of respondents said the situation around access to rehabilitation space had stayed the same or become worse in the past six months.
