The Police Rehabilitation Centre, Flint House,
Corona Virus Update August 10th
Following the latest Government advice regarding COVID -19 The Police Rehabilitation Centre still has to remain closed for residential patient treatment. At this time we are unable to accept or hold application forms for residential treatment.
During lockdown, police officers in need have continued to receive Flint House care and support, with programmes taking place virtually with exercise videos and treatments/consultations being shared online via YouTube, Zoom video calls and other channels.
Our clinical teams have been in contact with patients who had to have their treatment periods cancelled and remote treatments have been offered where appropriate. The Physio team are all working from Flint House, thereby keeping that all important link to the unique "Flint House" factor. You may apply for treatment and our clinical team will contact and review with how we are able to help remotely. The virtual programmes offered by the centre have been taken up by around 250 officers after our last website update inviting existing patients and new patients to take part.
Since August 3rd a new proactive approach to social media is assisting greatly in sharing the ‘Flint House Factor’ to more officers, encouraging those who need our expert help to come forward and get the treatment they need as well as keep everyone up to date with the latest information as we work towards when we can reopen safely.
That officers haven’t been able to come to Flint House yet is because we are having to comply with the various regulatory standards to ensure that when patients do come here, we can look after you in a safe environment, ensuring ther is no risk to each other and staff.
Working out ensuring that when patients come here, that it is safe to be here, and that we can manage fully that safety is paramount. For Flint House, Covid-19 and the easing of the lockdown poses varied and considerable challenges due to our obligations to comply with diverse industry standards; hotel and catering, bars and pub, gymnasiums and healthcare simultaneously whilst accommodating patient officers from a wide geographical area.
Please be assured as soon as we can re-open in whatever form we are able to, we will let you know.
