Flint House "Jewel in the Crown" Opens

We are excited to announce that Flint House's brand new swimming and hydrotherapy pools are officially open.
“Today we are so proud to announce our 'Jewel In The Crown' at Flint House” says Communications Manager, Kevin Bishop.
“After months of hard work, highly sophisticated planning and superb craftsmanship, the new swimming and hydrotherapy pools are now officially open. "This marks another highpoint in our delivery of gold standard treatment for sick and injured police officers. A brand new, and significantly larger, Hydrotherapy pool with resistance jets, a beautifully constructed and finished new swimming/exercise pool and totally new changing rooms all came together today. “Coupled with the new Gymnasium opened last year by Dame Kelly Holmes DBE, our Rehabilitation facilities and level of treatment must stand as some of the best in the country.
“Everything we deliver at Flint House, whether it is Physical Rehabilitation, Mental Health Rehabilitation, Accommodation, Food, or simply the picturesque surroundings, is dedicated to those who protect and keep us safe.“That frontline police officers can access Flint House, and let’s not forget that includes PCSO’s, MoD, NCA, BTP and DDO’s, all of whom are out there doing a difficult job and in currently a very difficult time for the UK, for the princely sum of just £1.70 per week donation has to be the most amazing value proposition when it comes to looking after the number one priority - your own health and wellbeing!”

London Marathon 2021 Entry

If you are looking at entry into the London marathon in October 2021 and haven't decided which charity you might wish to support, would you consider raising funds for us? Looking at who holds bonds and charity ballot places there seems to be just small handful of Emergency Services listed and only one direct Police Charity (not Flint House unfortunately) among the hundreds listed.
The 2021 race ballot which ended on Friday 9 October 2020 gave people without places a chance of entry. The 2021 ballot results will be announced in early January 2021. If you do get a place would be prepared to run for us and raise funds? We would be incredibly grateful and more than happy to assist with setting up a funding page and supplying you with water bottles and logo tee shirts. We would come and cheer you on as well! All the information can be found on the Virgin site at 
or give us a call on 01491 874499

Virtual treatments are in operation at Flint House

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.

Time board

Flint House to reopen September 7th

 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.
