“ Our mission is to provide the highest standards of individually planned, intensive, rehabilitation services for sick and injured, serving and retired police officers”
Unfortunately 9 out of 10 officers are likely to receive an injury during their service, and year on year the Police Rehabilitation Centre, Flint House, admits increasing numbers of officers year on year for intensive treatment and care. More than 3000 officers, a new record, were admitted in 2007.
The Centre is located at Flint House in Goring-on Thames where it has developed both its facilities and treatment to assist officers in returning to duty.
Treatments include: Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Stress Counselling, General nursing Care, Acupuncture, Health Classes, Sleep relaxation, Aromatherapy, Therapeutic massage.
THE MYTHS OF ADMISSION
1. You may only attend if you were injured on duty –WRONG!
(You may attend regardless of how or where your injury or illness was sustained)
2. You must have a serious injury – WRONG!
If the problem is keeping you off work or causing you discomfort whilst at work then you should consider attending Flint House.
3. My force must decide whether I need to attend – WRONG!
(Flint House is a registered charity, not a part of the police service; we only need your doctor to provide your medical details on the application form and someone at your force i.e. JBB Secretary, Force M.O. or Welfare Officer/Occupational Heath representative, to confirm whether or not you regularly contribute to the charity and that you are a serving police officer or retired officer in receipt of a full pension)
4. It’s only for retired officers – WRONG!
85% – 90% of admissions are for our first priority – SERVING OFFICERS
5. The Centre only offers physiotherapy – WRONG!
Although we offer the most sophisticated physiotherapy and rehabilitation service you are likely to receive we also provide effective psychological support and general nursing and convalescent care, help with drug and alcohol problems, acupuncture and a number of complementary therapy
