Prime Practice has been an extremely positive addition to our extra-curricular sports programme, supporting both students and staff during our fixtures. All the therapists have been very professional and caring when supporting student injuries during games and at our weekly injury clinic. The medical feedback after injuries has allowed us to monitor students recover and enable a safe return to play for all. I would thoroughly recommend Prime Practice to any school.

Having used Prime Practice for our return to playing inter school matches this year we have been very impressed with the care and treatment provided by the pitchside team. Their proactivity in quickly responding to an injury for either side was very reassuring to the players, staff and parents. Their report on each injury at the end of the fixture was also very helpful in monitoring the players welfare subsequently.
I would highly recommend the group to any School considering First Aid cover in the future.

Helping you meet the regulations

We will ensure that the provision we offer meets the requirements of the sporting governing bodies. 

Over the last few years the RFU, FA and many other sporting governing bodies have introduced initiatives that outline to schools and clubs the minimum requirements of medical care for sporting events. 

We guarantee that our practitioners conform to these guidelines and have the recognised qualifications to cover your sporting event. 

Player Welfare Services

We work on a regular basis with directors of sport, teachers, coaching staff and pastoral heads regarding a player’s injury status and their ongoing treatment plans.

We also work closely with school medical centres ensuring that transfer of information from playing field to medical centre staff is smooth and comprehensive. If a school does not have this provision a direct hand over to coaching staff and/or parents will be given.

We are also able to offer consultancy services which cover additional medical management opportunities utilising highly qualified staff

Additional services available:

On-site physiotherapy/sport therapy clinics
Concussion management pathways
Strength and Conditioning Services
Dietetics and Nutrition Services.

Our tailored physiotherapy services can be integrated into school timetables to enable students to access sessions during their school day. These sessions can be arranged during lunch times, sports sessions and and thereby minimise disruption to pupils learning.
