We recognise that long hours and high pressured working environments will leave many NHS staff with a variety of musculoskeletal problems, like neck and back pain, tension headaches, knee and foot problems, as well as feelings of stress, anxiety and a lack of fitness and wellbeing.
Volunteers from all departments at PSM have set up a virtual clinic where NHS staff can see a clinician for any MSK condition or to obtain an individualised exercise programme free of charge. Please see the full list of services available below.
