•The Physiotherapy Service operates satellite clinics in key Trust locations and also works in areas of the Trust with identified high incidences of MSK (musculoskeletal) absence.
•Work has been undertaken with our Moving and Handling Teams and Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression Teams to ensure training in these key areas are MSK friendly, especially in relation to employees with long term chronic MSK conditions.
•A suite of 5 informative / educative films has also been developed by the physiotherapist for common MSK issues for staff and managers to access.
•Access to Occupational Therapy in Occupational Health (OH) is provided and looks at routine, motivation, cognition and physical issues all associated with chronic long term conditions.
•Access is also available via OH to the Expert Patient Programme which is an NHS self management course for people with long term conditions.
