Event description

Description

Our national healthcare system is waking up to the fact that a sustainable and more effective service for patients is dependent on better delivery of community based care and a patient centred care pathway.

The Physiotherapist’s role in delivering effective community rehabilitation to improve patient care and alleviate the pressure on hospitals is vital, yet healthcare decision-makers are yet to fully recognise the benefits that physiotherapy can bring to help revolutionise systems. Currently the gap between health and social care is wide and often a ‘postcode lottery’. So what can we, as physiotherapists do to suggest improvements in the system, influence the people who need to hear what we have to say and collaborate to achieve a brighter future for community rehabilitation. What are the challenges we face, particularly in intermediate care, that need to be addressed?

This FREE event aims to bring CSP members together across the North West region to share ideas, ways of working and galvanise opinion on what the profession can deliver locally to improve the system for patients longer-term.

Drawing inspiration from The CSP, local decision-makers, patients and local members, this event is the start of a conversation that needs to happen to improve community rehabilitation and ensure that physiotherapy has a voice as the healthcare system evolves to place greater emphasis on community based care.
