Browning Room Opens at TVP Police Station in Reading

Flint House staff send a sincere thanks to TVP for inviting FH representatives to todays opening of The Browning Room. Set up by poular demand after surveying officers what they would envision as a place to just relax in at break times it was agreed to convert an old and long disused  control room as a breakout /drop in suite for Police officers to go, to relax, eat, chill and to talk in comfort and security. Designed to make Reading a happier and healthier place for Officers to work.

The Suite is named in honour and memory of Thames Valley Police officer Gareth Browning. Gareth was patrol in Whitley, Reading, in November 2013 when he was hit by a vehicle he was attempting to stop. He never recovered from his injuries passing away in April  2017 as a result of those injuries .

Winter Infections Advice to Patients

Logo 3 Lower resolution 570x600

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS

Influenza and the ‘winter vomiting bug’ (Norovirus) are common causes of infection especially prevalent at this time of year.

Flint House has a Duty of Care to every patient that comes for treatment. In order to prevent communicable diseases from spreading, we urge you to stay at home if you feel unwell in the days preceding your admission date. Inform the Centre and we will look to rebook your admission at a convenient time.

Flint House Infection control policy dictates that, if you become unwell during your stay at Flint House you will be isolated in your room for 48 hours after symptoms have stopped (diarrhoea, vomiting or fever). If you bring active infection to the Centre there are serious implications to the Centre as a whole, you will be putting many (up to 140 of your fellow police officers) at risk as well as the Flint House staff.

Be sensible – keep your germs to yourself!
