Have Your Say: Physiotherapy Services for Adults with Cerebral Palsy

April 4, 2019

Same Difference has been asked to publicise the below email by a friend of the site:

A questionnaire about ‘the views and perspectives of adults with cerebral palsy about physiotherapy’ is now live.

https://brunel.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/the-views-and-perspectives-of-adults-with-cerebral-palsy_1

Little is currently known about how physiotherapy services are received by adults with CP, therefore a collaboration of researchers from Brunel University London and The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland have launched this survey. Any adult with Cerebral Palsy from the UK and Ireland is eligible to take part.

The main aims of the survey are to understand the reasons why people try to access services, what services are actually provided, and in turn what is valued and or could be improved. The findings could lead to guidance on what areas require further research and how to model and improve services.

This survey provides an opportunity for adults with CP to have their opinions heard, and to be a part of what is promising to be an exciting time for research in this area. In the last year alone the NICE guidelines on adults with CP have been released http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng119

RADiCAL a research group specific to research into adults with CP has been set up https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Projects/RADiCAL-Researching-health-and-well-being-of-adults-with-cerebral-palsy

And the Adult CP Hub charity who are providing a much needed call for action for adults with Cerebral Palsy, has been launched https://en-gb.facebook.com/adultcphub/

    “Research” Funded By –

    Funding body
    Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Charitable Trust –
    https://www.csp.org.uk/about-csp/how-we-work/charitable-trust

    “The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is the professional, educational and trade union body for the UK’s 58,000 chartered physiotherapists, physiotherapy students and support workers.”

    ***ATOS*** and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) –
    https://www.csp.org.uk/frontline/article/time-re-assess-changes-atos

    “A small, but potentially growing, number are taking on a relatively new work opportunity – as personal independence payment (PIP) assessors.”

    “About 150 CSP members are carrying out PIP assessment work, often alongside a more traditional clinical role. ”

    “Over the last 18 months, a number of CSP members who conduct assessments for Atos have said they are working in conditions that they feel are unacceptable.
    Among their concerns are: the safety of physios providing these assessments; whether the level of training is appropriate for the work; and the challenges of meeting the rigorous checks carried out by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)when it investigates the standard of physios’ assessments. ”

    Translation – ‘Waaaa Boooo Hoooo Just Following Orders.’

    “‘We do take the concerns of members who have opted to do this work really seriously,’ said chief executive Karen Middleton. ‘We want to ensure the appropriate governance and training is in place for our members.
    ‘But I’m aware this is a really sensitive issue,’ she added.”


    chief executive Karen Middleton. “She remains on the HCPC register as a physiotherapist.”

    https://www.csp.org.uk/about-csp/who-we-are/karen-middleton-profile

    “He refutes any suggestion that they have a remit from the DWP to reduce benefit awards, but they do have targets built into their contracts with what they call their ‘supply chain partners’”

    “Quite appropriately, checks are made on the standard of an assessor’s work. But this feedback can be a frustrating experience for physios who don’t meet the required grade. They are scored on an A-B-C rating to make sure they are meeting DWP standards. If they consistently score C they are not allowed to continue as an assessor.”

    “Members have expressed concern at the time taken assessing a complex case (they are meant to take an hour but two is not unusual). They are also worried at their own safety when handling patients with mental health problems, whose cases often take longer.

    One member worked in a clinic that had panic alarms, but only by the office door, rendering them virtually useless. ”

    “He is also keen to emphasise that there will be more training for physio assessors in how to handle claimants with mental health issues and dealing with difficult situations.”

    So what ‘Professional Mental Health qualifications do these Abusing Hate Criminal FRAUDSTERS have? NONE.

        Untrue

        >”Maybe you post too many links at a time?”
        If you “never censor comments.” then why would a comment with “too many links” vanish?..
        How many is “too many links”?

      • April 5, 2019 2:56 pm

        I don’t censor comments. But maybe WordPress do. I don’t know how many is too many. You’ll have to ask WordPress.
