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.

Flint House staff send a sincere thanks to TVP for inviting FH representatives to todays opening of The Browning Room. Set up by popular 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 .
