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:
- 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:
- mobilisation techniques
- gym sessions
- hydrotherapy (Sandwell Hospital)
- pain management.
