The Board of Trustees and CEO Tom MCAuslin are pleased to announce that Flint House is now in a position to admit patients for physiotherapy (in much reduced numbers) from Monday 7 September. Due to the interactive nature of our mental health programme we will not be able to offer this residentially for the time being.
The staff at Flint House have been working hard to ensure that when we can admit patients for treatment it is safe to do so. This has been challenging due to the Centre's obligations to comply with the guidelines across the various sectors; hotel and catering, bars and pubs, gymnasiums and healthcare simultaneously whilst accommodating patient officers from a wide geographical area.
Flint House will only be able to offer residential Physiotherapy treatment to those patients who have completed the remote consultations with us. Their clinical team will then assess the benefits of a 5 day residential stay assuming that they are eligible after strict COVID risk assessments.
Patients will be contacted directly by the Centre. Initially the numbers will be small with a view to expanding within the limits of safe social distancing. Stringent pre-admission protocols and daily screening regimes are being developed to ensure the safety of all patients and staff.
For those who require our services please apply in the normal way at https://www.flinthouse.co.uk/attending/application-form.

Following the latest Government advice regarding COVID -19 The Police Rehabilitation Centre still has to remain closed for residential patient treatment currently although plans are being set in place to open safely. More detail will follow on this over the coming weeks. Follow our facebook and twitter updates if you are able.
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 online utilising our own YouTube exercise videos, Zoom video calls and telephone based programmes.
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. With Physio and Mental Health teams are all working from Flint House, the ethos of keeping the esential link to our unique "Flint House" factor is still retained whilst we cannot have patients in the Centre. You may apply for treatment and our clinical team will contact and review with you how we are able to help. The virtual physio 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.
