Flint House re-opens on Monday

Flint House, the police rehabilitation centre, is preparing to re-open after coronavirus forced its closure earlier in the year.

A limited number of physiotherapy patients will be able to visit the centre on a mostly non-residential basis from Monday (7 September) but some patients who have completed remote consultations may be offered a five-day residential stay following an initial coronavirus assessment and ongoing screening.

Tom McAuslin, Flint House’s chief executive officer, said: “Re-opening in accordance with the Government guidelines has been challenging but we are pleased to be able to welcome initially small numbers of patients with a view to expanding those numbers safely.”

Around 250 police officers in need of treatment during lockdown were able to receive virtual physiotherapy programmes through the Flint House team.

Flint House, based in South Oxfordshire, is a police supported charity offering mental and physical rehabilitation to police staff. It offers a range of services which help more than 3,000 officers return to work every year.
