WHAT DOES OUR CHARITY DO?
Every year we successfully treat over 3,000 police officers.
We realise the job of a police officer can be physically and mentally demanding. How do you ensure you are both physically fit and strong enough to cope with it?
Flint House can help. Our team of highly skilled Physiotherapists, Mental Health Practitioners and Registered Nurses, make it their mission to enable serving officers to get back to full duties. We also offer retired police officers help with physical rehabilitation.
We offer world class physio treatment here at Flint House. The focus of our highly skilled team? To always maximise the outcome of your vastly improved health and fitness.
From the second you step foot on site you will recognise that we strive for excellence in every area of rehabilitation. Our facilities rehabilitate; and respond to the challenges you face.
The days of ‘man up’ are behind us. It is ok not to be ok. Our Mental Health programme offers the opportunity for patients to address their individual needs in a safe environment.
I can’t praise these guys enough! The care from everyone is second to none. Having come to a standstill with NHS and occupational health I found the intensive physio made a world of difference.
You don’t know if you’re going to get injured at work and actually if there’s somewhere you can go and get treated why wouldn’t you pay into it.
If you’re not paying into Flint House, why aren’t you? It’s not just a security policy for yourself if you need it due to any kind of injury on or off duty, but it’s also there to support colleagues.
On the 10th June I was just starting a night shift and we were just joining the M1 southbound to help with another collision. Our vehicle left the road and collided with a tree….
I wouldn’t stop paying for it, I’d be willing to pay more for it. You don’t know if you’re going to get injured at work and actually if there’s somewhere you can go to go and get that treated why wouldn’t you pay into it.
When I went to Flint House I was only 28 years old and the injury was a result of running. I’d had surgery for patellar tendonitis on my knee…
I’m a proud polie officer, and I’m also a proud roller derby player. Unfortunately back in 2019 I suffered a trimalleolar fracture to my left ankle. I wasn’t able to weight bare at all. I spent many weeks in a wheelchair.
It was soul destroying because it was a life changing injury. I’d gone to being a fit police officer to not being to look after my children.
One of the savours was definitely Flint House…
Over the next few weeks, our mental health team will be out on the road in an Oscar Kilo Wellbeing Van, visiting police forces.
