Health & Work Matters is a project specifically to empower Healthcare professionals and employers to be able to support their patients / employees better when it comes to MSKs, pain and work related issues, because we believe passionately that with our background as Physiotherapists with lots of experience in Occupational Health that we are well placed to help you with this.
As an introduction to our philosophy we recommend taking a listen to our Launch podcast from March 8th 2015 in collaboration with The Physio Matters Podcast team and Jack Chew:

Here is some recent feedback about the podcast:
“I’m much more happy to discuss work with patients now. If they’re not able to work I set it as a priority now, whereas I probably would have avoided discussing it as it can be a little awkward. So you’re already influencing practice!” MB
