Programme update:

Our Everybody ESCAPE-pain Knee and Hip and Lower Back will be resuming in October from Crewe, Macclesfield and Congleton for customers who were already participating in a programme or registered to join prior to lockdown.

From the 5th October, these customers will be contacted by our health team and informed the programme is resuming along with our new procedures/guidance and terms and conditions.

This will be kept under review, when we are able to reopen referrals, in order to access these programmes it will be via referral only and you must be referred by a health professional e.g GP, Physio etc, at the moment self referral is not available.
