Each month, we celebrate the wellbeing services provided by our nurses and the impact it has on school staff and pupils across the country. We are also working to raise awareness and start conversations in an effort to help encourage people to seek support and also raise awareness about statistics relating to that wellbeing service.
The focus this month is on SAS Physiotherapy Support
It is estimated that around 43% of people in the UK suffer with chronic pain. In an effort to reduce waiting times to access therapy, SAS offer a private physiotherapy service to ensure that while your staff are waiting for a referral, they can address and access therapy to alleviate discomfort.
- Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, SAS physio has been able to continue to support 94% of all referrals by providing detailed and personalised exercise programmes to minimise effects of the pain they are experiencing.
- 58% of all SAS physio claims in June 2020 were as a result of back related conditions. The pandemic has seen an increase in need for physiotherapy support due to issues caused by lockdown, such as their home office set up or the increase in physical activities resulting in exercise related discomfort.
- 74.5% of all people accessing physio with SAS would have been likely to experience absence without intervention.
- Of those accessing our physiotherapy service, the likelihood of potential absence went down by 40.2% from referral to discharge in 2019
