"Our main focus is better health and wellbeing for employees and employers."
James Burgess – Founder
CITY HEALTHCARE SOLUTIONS
City Healthcare Solutions was founded by James Burgess. After 5 years in practice, a patient one late Tuesday afternoon in the Ashford clinic, thanked James for staying open until 9pm.
The reason the clinic stayed open so late was to allow the patients who worked in London enough time to get home from work and to make their way to the clinic (a few minutes from Ashford International station).
These patients were CEO’s, CFO’s, head hunters and directors who worked long days and couldn't always guarantee to make the 5:30 train home.
The last patient that Tuesday evening said ‘Couldn’t you treat me at my work?’ The answer was sure why not! That was when the idea of onsite treatment was first considered.
After many months of research and discussions with the different individuals who work in London, the company ‘City Healthcare Solutions’ was founded.
The discussions and research showed that it was fundamental to offer a package rather than just one dimension. This lead to the inclusion of onsite Yoga and ergonomic desk assessments.
Offering a package to deliver a great service to decrease the cost of Musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries and hence decrease employee absenteeism, increase employee retention, give employees a great benefits package and allows individuals who work long hours to have the treatment at work - no more having to work from home to be able to make an appointment.
A COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO A VERY EXPENSIVE PROBLEM!
