Virtual Physiotherapy UK 2021

More than 1,400 physiotherapy professionals came together in November, for a virtual conference like no other.  

Virtual Physiotherapy UK 2021 was everything our flagship in-person conference always has been. Two packed days of valuable CPD – focused symposia, platform and poster presentations, workshops, panel debates… it was all there.

There were 64 sessions and 412 chairs, speakers and poster authors presenting virtually.

A big thank you to all those that have taken part: keynotes, chairs, speakers, poster authors, delegates, council members, volunteers and staff.  

A special thank you goes to the professional networks that delivered the conference in partnership with the CSP, ACPRC, APPN, ATOCP, DIPG, MACP and Physio First.

The recordings are available exclusively for delegates.
