Two of our Physios, Lorna and Lyndsay have been at Polar Park, Heathrow last week working with the Met on injury prevention.
They led practical sessions, which included Stretch and Release and Movement Preparation, along with educational sessions on back care and injury prevention.
The sessions were well attended and FH and Lorna & Lyndsay have had nothing but positive feedback.
The aim was to issue information and exercises on how to look after your body to prevent work related injuries and raise awareness of the work we do at Flint House.
Practical sessions to be posted soon. #Rehabitswhatwedo

A colossus of Flint House retired on March 9th! David Flint after 20+ years as THE Clinical lead and laterly Clinical Director, finally closed the door on his immense and impressive career in th care and treatment of injured Police Officers for over 20 years ..
Originally appointed as Rehabilitation Manager/Supt. Physiotherapist he was appointed to his present post as Clinical Director responsible for Physical Rehabilitation, Nursing and Psychological Services in April 2016.
During his 20+ yrs. at Flint House David oversaw many changes and improvements to clinical delivery at the PRC. He was always proud of the professionalism of his staff and the quality of care offered to the Police Officers who crossed our portals. His philosophy is that the most important criteria for any change is that ‘it is for the benefit of the patient’. He encouraged the staff to constantly challenge themselves, their patients and embedded culture whilst simultaneously remained committed to maintaining the high standards of The Police Rehabilitation Centre.
David achievements and accolades are too numerous to mention, suffice they stand alone and unparallelled as testament to his talent, character, and professional prescence in his time at Flint House. We will miss him personally and professionally. David now enters a new chapter in his life, the main event being a bit of me-time with his grandchildren we believe, followed by his extending his already extensive Thespian career into that of being a full time actor.
