Dr Greg Whyte PhD, BSc (Hons) Welcome to the first edition of 2010. The


to the first edition of 2010. The London Olympics are getting closer and this summer the organising committee will be asking for


volunteers for the medical services. The window to sign up will only be open for a short time so don’t delay your application. By the way this is in addition to the initial request for volunteers made when the announcement of the host was made. Even if you signed up through the 2012 site at that time, you will need to sign up again.


The sports, health and leisure industries have an alphabet soup of organisations claiming to represent all or part of the professions. Three of these the FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists) ISRM (Institute of Sports and Remedial Massage), not to be confused with ISRM (Institute of Sports and Recreational Management) and STO (Sports Therapy Organisation) are members of the GCMT (General Council of Massage Therapy) who claim to represent the massage industry. There is another organisation, the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), which apparently also has a foot in the camp. They have joined forces to form yet another acronym the SRTC (Sports and Remedial Therapy Council) the trouble is that forming a new organisation just confuses the public and dilutes any influence the industry may have with those in government or sporting governing bodies who call the shots. If you don’t like what your organisation does, get active and change it.
