Many employers provide staff benefits including private medical insurance, or self-pay cash back policies. However, these benefits are largely under used and not fully understood by employees.
Freedom Care Clinics provide solutions to improve staff wellbeing and wellness within Canary Wharf London, and the financial districts of Leeds and Manchester. We have previously worked with large businesses such as HSBC, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Pinsent Masons, as well as many SME’s. We have experience in delivering solutions to reduce absenteeism and presenteeism related to musculoskeletal pain.
Musculoskeletal pain is the cause of 22% of work place absence, and includes symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headaches and repetitive strain injury.

Zero cost? Yes, this can all be provided at zero cost to the employer. Freedom Care Clinics benefit from the exposure and publicity which is secondary to organising events within businesses. In addition, many employees are unaware that their private medical insurance can cover the cost of any interventional treatment required.
