The CPIP-London region covers Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Greater London, Middlesex and Oxfordshire.
The London region has recently obtained the live database and we are gradually adding individual trust access as Information Governance approval is achieved. We are working with several trusts in North and East London to agree this. If your trust is not working on gaining access please contact your regional rep to discuss this. .
We are also establishing our training and competency programme for CPIP trainers and assessors.
Alongside this we run regular meetings as peer support sessions for both the admin and clinical aspects of implementing CPIP in your practice. This group consists of representatives of most of the boroughs in North and East London and includes physios, paediatricians and radiologists. If you are not sure who your representative is please get in touch with your regional rep.
The CPIP National Committee has redrafted the CPIP trainer and trainee competencies and training packages. Applications to be a CPIP trainer can be can now be sent directly to your regional rep.
The CPIP website is also available as a useful resource for medical professionals and children/young people with CP and their families. Please take a look at www.cpipuk.org.
