To prevent injury at work. To keep people healthy and fit at work. To bring people back to work.

HS Rehab Occupational Health Service provides promptly delivered services and effectively assists in reducing the cost of absence to your business. Benefits of our service include improved productivity, increased employee engagement and a reduction in staff absence.

Many businesses rely on NHS services to manage musculoskeletal issues amongst their employees. With NHS waiting lists for physiotherapy services often exceeding 2 months, there can be lengthy delay in employees receiving early treatment and advice. This can affect businesses in a number of ways including lengthy employee sickness absence and loss of productivity. This not only affects the financial performance of the business, but also has a significant impact on the employees` recovery and general wellbeing.

HS Rehab has an enviable track record in providing musculoskeletal clinical support to the NHS and private sector across the UK. We are able to provide a wide range of clinical services either at an organisation's own site or across the UK via the national clinical network.
