CPIP-West Midlands

There continues to an excellent buy-in from physiotherapists in this region following a hip surveillance programme for children with CP .The CPIP Patient Management System (CPIP-PMS) has been in use for some time now by most of the trusts in the West Midlands. Reasons for not inputting include local arrangements having to be put in place to ensure IG, and issues with physiotherapy services capacity and demand.

The buy-in from orthopaedic surgeons in the region is still challenging with only one Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Steve Cooke, entering X-ray findings.  Alternative solutions need to be sought to get this data on to the CPIP-PMS.

Any support or training needs in the region please do get in touch.
