As a result of various changes within the healthcare sector and the NHS, working arrangements and environments for the Professions Allied to Medicine (PAMs) now vary across the UK. This book aims to identify and clarify management and career issues that impact the working lives of therapists and other PAMs. It is particularly targeted at students close to graduating and newly qualified or training grade therapists.

After an introductory overview, the book considers the organization of the NHS and how recent changes have impacted on therapy services. Further chapters include the background to the development of the PAMs, personnel issues and early career management. The book also considers the main legislation governing clinical practice, teamwork, multi–disciplinary working, continuing professional development and the roles of professional organizations. The final chapter considers the main areas of work outside the NHS.
