    Far too many women were rushed into mesh sling surgery for stress incontinence after birth when pelvic floor physiotherapy could have fixed or eased the problem. In France, women are offered pelvic floor physiotherapy after childbirth as standard. A recent question to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care asked what assessment the Department has made of the potential benefits of offering new mothers pelvic floor physiotherapy. This question was answered on 15 November 2022: "The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence’s guidance recognises that physiot

    Recommendations Hip fracture teams should use quarterly governance meetings to review the quality and outcome of the care they provide. Where performance is significantly below average, units should formally discuss possible reasons for this within their regular MDT meeting, and plan a QI project to address it.

The NHFD recommends that go

    Recommendations Early mobilisation Collaborative multidisciplinary working is needed to ensure that pain, hypotension and delirium do not hold back early progress in physiotherapy. Patients should be helped to get up by the day after surgery – such ‘mobilisation’ is key to patients’ wellbeing and avoidance of complications such as delirium, deconditioning and pressure damage. This mobilisation is just one element of the physiotherapy provided to patients, but it is the key measure that the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) will use to drive forward local quality improvemen

    Millions of people in the UK are suffering poor health because they miss out on vital rehabilitation after strokes, heart attacks and cancer, which in turn is also heaping further pressure on the NHS, a damning report warns. Physiotherapists say some groups of patients are particularly badly affected. Without access to these services, many patients desperately trying to recover from illness became “stuck in a downward spiral”, they said, with some developing other health conditions as a result. The new report by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) says millions of people in

    Pharmacists and some other healthcare professionals, rather than just GPs, will soon be able to sign people off sick from work, under new rules. The law change will take effect in July and apply across England, Wales and Scotland. The aim is to free up family doctors' time. People off work for more than seven consecutive days because of illness may need to show a note from a healthcare professional to their employer. When the new legislation is passed, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists (working in hospitals and GP practices) and physiotherapists will be able to provid

Ash James, director of practice and development at the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), said its helpline had been swamped with calls from distressed physiotherapists, concerned for th
