Award shortlist for physio service

A year-long pilot, launched in February to support NHS staff has been shortlisted for an award.

The Physio for You service at Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), is among the finalists in the musculoskeletal (MSK) Care category of the Patient Safety Awards 2015.

The service provides early intervention for staff injuries and problems relating to muscles, bones or joints.

Occupational Health Physiotherapist at LCHS Navroz Amlani said: “We are delighted this innovative service is being recognised on a national platform. It not only supports the health and wellbeing of individual staff members, but in turn their wider team and the patients we care for.”

The winner will be announced at the ICC, in Birmingham, on July 6
