Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 19th March 2020 

The STA, after careful consideration of current WHO and Government advice, following consultation with the leading membership bodies and insurance companies issue this statement.
We strongly recommend that our valued members cease face to face appointments with immediate effect in line with Social distancing guidelines issued by the WHO, this measure is in place to slow the infection curve and preserve the capacity within the NHS to deal with high risk groups.
The STA understands the financial impact of this advice as we are also practitioners who give our time freely to run the STA and support the members. 
There will be a joint statement issued via social media and websites later today.
Several membership associations have agreed to collaborate on a range of measures to ensure relevant information is public facing and up to date with Government policy.
It remains only for me to wish good health and best wishes to you and your families at this unprecedented time of turbulence.
Kindest regards 
Gary Benson, Founder of the Sports Therapy Association 


Sports Therapy Association (STA) is setting a new gold standard in professional representation for sports therapists, sports injury therapists and soft tissue therapists across the United Kingdom.

We have worked passionately to develop a truly independent and ethical association that is committed to raising standards across the industry and progressing opportunities for our valued members.

As practicing Sports Therapists, working in an increasingly challenging political climate, we identified the need for a new, dynamic, forward thinking and proactive professional association - a body that could voice the opinions of practitioners and lobby for positive change, crucially without the bias associated with direct links to training providers. We are proud of what the Sports Therapy Association represents and we will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of our members and to fulfil our commitment to promote excellence in the field of Sports Therapy.
