In a trail period we implemented our weekly physiotherapy clinic in which we assess, advice and treat employees as soon as possible. This fast access service ensures our patient gets off to the best possible start in their recovery is expertly managed until returning to normal working duties.
One of the key components of this service is supporting the employee and communicating with the management to plan return to work programmes. These stepped programmes aim to safely integrate the recovering patient back into normal working life and decrease the probability of a recurrence.
Below is part of a testimonial given by the Manager we were providing the service for:
“They have helped us to reduce the amount of people absent due to injuries caused at work but more importantly they have helped us to ensure colleagues stay at work when they potentially have gone absent. They deliver a professional service with a friendly manner that all colleagues who have attended a session have attested to. They have also been invaluable with advice on when colleagues should return and what type of work they could do on return”.
“I am happy to say that Occupational Health Physiotherapy have really made an impact on our absence at the site. They have helped us to reduce the amount of people absent due to injuries caused at work, but more importantly they have helped us to ensure colleagues stay at work.” Read more.
