The Trust provides a free physiotherapy service for all its staff, regardless of their role. This is a self-referring service, and doesn’t require recommendation from a GP.

If staff feel that they would benefit from the services of a physiotherapist, they can contact Occupational Health and ask for an appointment with a staff-dedicated therapist during works time. Problems might include:

  • posture
  • walking problems
  • arthritic pain
  • bad back
  • joint pain.

Staff physiotherapy services are available at Sandwell and City Hospitals, along with Rowley Regis Hospital, Victoria Health Centre and Neptune Health Park.

Several free treatments are available, including:

  • assessment
  • exercise
  • advice
  • mobilisation techniques
  • acupuncture
  • gym sessions
  • hydrotherapy (Sandwell Hospital)
  • electrotherapy
  • pain management.
