Motion text

That this House welcomes the decision outlined in the document, Investment and reform for NHS staff - taking forward the NHS Plan, that physiotherapists are very much in demand for implementation of the NHS Plan; recognises that currently demand for physiotherapists outstrips supply and that vacancy rates for physiotherapists are alarmingly high; welcomes the Government's announcement regarding a proposed rise in the number of physiotherapists of 59 per cent. from 15,600 to 24,800 between 2000 and 2009, to address this demand; recognises that physiotherapy has more applications per place than any other degree course in the UK, yet there are currently insufficient student clinical places to complete training; urges the Government to address that fact; and also urges the devolved administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to make a commitment to an increase in physiotherapy numbers in the NHS in those regions.
