Professor of psychology, Phil Reed, was guest speaker at a physiotherapy seminar held at the National Assembly for Wales.

The Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Network was sponsored and chaired by David Rees AM, chairman of the Health and Social Services Committee, and supported by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

The audience of key people from the NHS in Wales heard from physiotherapists about current guidelines, best practice examples and the mental health problems that can be associated with pelvic health dysfunction.

Professor Phil Reed has been working closely with the physiotherapy service at Singleton Hospital, Swansea, and is continuing to provide research support for the women’s health service. His research has shown how psychology can support physiotherapy to become even more effective.
