Who we are



We are a physiotherapy membership organisation whose members have a specialist interest in musculoskeletal health. The organisation is run by an elected committee on behalf of its members and supported by a number of subcommittees.

The MACP is recognised by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy as one of their professional networks.
