I am surprised that there is no mention of Dorothy Mandelstam in the historical note. She was a stalwart member of ICS and ACA from their early years, promoting the role of physiotherapy. After her death, I believe an award was created in her memory. She is mentioned in the ICS History book published last year. Dorothy was an excellent and entertaining speaker, making many presentations at ICS meetings over the years. I am sure that senior physiotherapists would be able to provide more detail, and I hope her contribution to the cause of physiotherapy in the prevention and treatment of incontinence can be recognised.

Like Eric Glen, I was surprised that the contribution made by Dorothy Mandelstam to the ICS was not recorded. Dorothy was the first phsiotherapist to become a member of the Society in 1975 and actively participated in the Annual Meetings over the following decade.

Thank you for your comments. Dorothy is mentioned in the powerpoint presentation, and I have also ammended that to recognise that she was the first physiotherapist to become a member of the society. The presentation is only intended as a brief history throughout the years but many thanks for bringing this to our attention and I am pleased she is also recognised in the ICS history book. Her contributions to the course of physiotherapy have also been recognised widely within the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and I believe she was awarded a fellowship.

I am pleased to see that in your amended powerpoint presentation it is noted that Dorothy was the first physiotherapist to become a member of the Society in 1975. Following her death in December 1996, a historical review of the considerable contributions made by her over the years in the field of Incontinence and its Management was given in an obituary published in the "Independent" newspaper deted 5 February 1997. This may be of interest to your Committee.

Thank you for that information. I will look up the Independent article. I never actually met Dorothy but am aware of the huge contribution she made to physiotherapy. I notice that there is an ACA award in honour of her name.
