Office

For office based workers, long periods sitting down working on a computer are particularly hazardous! Not only is this a huge cause of low back, neck and shoulder pain, but office workers are also likely to have raised blood pressure, high blood glucose levels and larger waist circumference.

Utilising evidence-based physiotherapy and ergonomic practice, ctchealthcare has developed an effective onsite program to assess your employees desk-based work environment – making immediate improvements and recommendations to help reduce musculoskeletal injury and sickness / absence.

Our health and wellbeing service targets general health, stress and musculoskeletal problems by assessing health parameters through on-site health screening. Health screening works most effectively when used with our comprehensive range of wellbeing initiatives. They are designed to improve individual and global productivity and easily fit into employees’ work and home lives. Our Wellbeing Interventions have been specifically developed to be fun, engaging and meaningful!

“Our staff really engaged with ctchealthcare’s Physiotherapist. Immediate adjustments were made to employee’s work stations to improve their posture and their working environment. Initial feedback has been positive, our staff have particularly mentioned the added benefit of performing the individualised stretches that the physiotherapist taught them to help reduce stress and strain on their bodies” .

Wellbeing Client

Case Study

A health and wellbeing project was started in February 2012 at an office based facility that has 300 employees. The project started with health screening and was then followed up with a 6 month health and wellbeing initiative’s program.

The program involved a variety of activities for both individuals and teams that were intended to be fun, engaging and meaningful. Some examples are: fruity Friday, walking Wednesdays, alcohol awareness comedy show, mindfulness based stress reduction course. These programs are intended to improve wellbeing within the workplace by introducing new interventions into employees working and home life.

In addition to this, physical activity in the workplace has been promoted; Pedometers have been provided for all employees that have signed up to the health and wellbeing in the workplace project. Employees are encouraged to wear there pedometer everyday and track the steps that they take. The number of steps can then be uploaded onto a social media site created specifically for the project, to enable monitoring of steps and progression.

Industrial

ctchealthcare are experts in the field of providing health and wellbeing services to industrial clients.

For manual workers musculoskeletal disorders often involve strains and sprains to the lower back, neck and upper limbs with the repetitive nature of the job causing regular recurrence of injury. High risk tasks involve bending, twisting, lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying heavy loads.

More than 1/3 of all over 3 day injuries reported to the HSE and local authorities each year are caused by manual handling (HSE 2010).

Ergonomic intervention can provide simple but effective techniques to alleviate injury and maximise productivity.

Our services include the creation of best working practice guidelines for some of the UK’s leading businesses. Through observation, analysis and discussion with both management and the workforce, interactive guidelines are developed to achieve gold standard practice and address general health and wellbeing issues.

"In addition to implementing injury prevention measures, ctchealthcare has effectively rehabilitated several manual based employees back to full working duties following injury.

When appropriate, ctchealthcare work along side our operations managers to access processes and effectively implement individualised staged return to work programs."

Mark Chadwick, Operations Director Custom Powders

Case Study

As well as manual handling training, a comprehensive guide was produced after a number of years of observing, analyzing and reviewing cylinder handling practice at an international gas company. This guide is now used as part of training throughout Europe.

“The guidelines combine detail with clarity and have empowered our employees to achieve Gold Standard working practice. Effective injury prevention, management and employee engagement has motivated us to implement the guidelines, with great success, throughout the UK and Europe.” (Bruce Alexander, Chief Medical Officer, Air Products plc)

Education

ctchealthcare’s service for schools targets physical, psychological and social health to improve attendance and promote academic performance – of both teachers and pupils.

The service for teachers focuses on sickness absence management and injury prevention by promoting health and wellbeing in the school environment. This service includes continued professional development workshops for teachers, based on current health issues in schools.

An average of 5.7 days per teacher are lost each year through sickness absence each year (Audit commission, 2011) and with

school teachers in general suffering from a higher prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, ctchealthcare is ideally placed to help schools to tackle these statistics.

Our service for pupils focuses on health assessment, education and health and wellbeing in the school environment and range from general health advice to sport specific performance enhancement. Research has identified a significant positive relationship between physical activity and academic performance of school pupils (Singh et al, 2012).

“Our onsite clinic at Ruskin Sports College has been running since January 2012. ctchealthcare offer physiotherapy assessment and treatment, sports massage and also offer a weekly group Pilates class. Members of staff refer themselves into the clinic on a “first come, first served” basis and are initially allowed three sessions to ensure the service is open to as many staff as possible.” .

Ella Brett, Ruskin Sports College

Case Study

Our onsite clinic at Ruskin Sports College has been running since January 2012. A fortnightly clinic allows eight members of staff to be seen in a session. We offer physiotherapy assessment, treatment and sports massage.

In addition, we also offer a weekly group Pilates class. Members of staff refer themselves into the clinic on a “first come, first served” basis and are initially allowed three sessions to ensure the service is open to as many staff as possible.

If staff require on-going intervention, they can attend one of our clinics for a discounted rate. All the staff members have been in work and have remained in work throughout physiotherapy intervention. Most members of staff have used the allocated available appointments.

"ctchealthcare’s telephone triage service addresses musculoskeletal discomfort on day 1. If our staff have any aches or pains, they know that they can speak to a qualified senior physiotherapist immediately. The service has enabled many of our employees to independently manage their symptoms and as a consequence, our employees often report that their symptoms fully resolve without the need for sickness absence."

Large Public Sector Client

Case Study

We provide a 3-stage service consisting of telephone triage, physiotherapy treatment and functional restoration programmes for employees at a large public sector organisation.

Our groundbreaking ‘DAY 1’ service is now in place for the organisation to offer support to sufferers of musculoskeletal and psychological conditions and help them to remain in work.

Between January and April 2012, 277 patients were referred for preventative treatment. Over 50% of referrals treated were for back and neck musculoskeletal conditions. Many patients were managed by telephone triage alone.

Of these patients:

  • 18 days per patient were saved on average on discharge with only telephone triage treatment. Based on an average salary of £25,000, this saved 558 days equating to £53,653.87 saved in sickness absence costs in 3 months.
  • 100% of preventative interventions for employees have allowed them to remain in work.
  • 100% of referrals were contacted for telephone triage within one working day.
  • 100% of employees who required stage 2 hands on treatment were given access within three working days.

Not for Profit

ctchealthcare’s service for ‘not for profit’ organisations is exemplified by our combined working with Better Bankside; an independent business improvement district based in SE1, London.

In 2010, Better Bankside successfully secured funding via the challenge fund to pilot an innovative wellbeing at work project, which was instigated by ctchealthcare.

The project set out to improve the health and wellbeing of 200 local employees within Better Bankside’s member businesses. Individual and group interventions were offered such as; nutritional therapy, art therapy, meditation and cycling classes.

Evaluation of the project revealed improvements in level of stress, productivity and blood pressure levels.

“Overall 94% of participants felt that the wellbeing interventions were delivered and ran effectively. 94% of participants reported enjoyment while taking part in their chosen intervention(s).”

Business District, London Client
