To help you live an independent and active life, both in work and in retirement, the Seafarers Hospital Society is continually developing its work to meet the health and fitness needs of seafarers.
In partnership with Harbourside Physiotherapy we have developed a network of physiotherapists who have practices close to the harbour. Network members in Cornwall, Devon, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, provide free treatment to working fishers. They are trained and supported to provide a holistic and preventative approach to physiotherapy services.
To book an appointment phone Harbourside Physiotherapy on 01736 366 224. Lines are open: Monday-Thursday 8:30am to 8pm, Friday 8:30am to 4pm. Saturday 9am to 12pm.
Since 2011 SHS have been funding a free nationwide physiotherapy service for working seafarers run by Connect Health. The service is available to merchant seafarers, and fishers throughout the UK. Phone 0191 247 5000.
