How can your company get benefit from using us?

Let’s take the simple cost of an absence due to e.g. to a bad back.  Consider an employee off for 5 days with a bad back, who works a 40 hr week at minimum wage of £6.70 (Oct 15 figures). Their job needs to be covered, so that costs you the employer, their sick pay and overtime rate at time and a half of £10.05 for 40 hours:-

40hrs x£6.70 an per hour = £268

40hrs x10.05= £402.

Total cost per week of absence is £670.

Compare this to our current patient results and overall treatment costs. You could potentially save £497! (£670-£173).  Even if you did not pay any overtime as the job did not have to be covered, it could still cost you £95 more than by employing a chiropractor (£268-173). Don’t take our word for it, read our patient reported results and costs.

The first 5 days of an employee’s absence is self-certificated which means time off can occur which could potentially be avoided. We are all aware of the crisis in the NHS, it’s hard for your employee’s to get a quick assessment and advice from their GP these days, due to the lack of available appointments.

Even if employees can get to see their GP quickly, often the time needed to make an in-depth assessment is in our opinion not possible, and it’s our experience that as a result, it’s simply easier for the GP to take the safest route – to sign the employee off and give them the standard pain killers/anti-inflammatories/muscle relaxants.

It costs the GP nothing to sign your employee off, often for weeks at a time – all of which costs your company.

GP’s do have knowledge and experience helping mechanical pains but few have the knowledge base to know the ins and outs about treating and correcting pains using manual treatments – their first port of call is usually pharmacology i.e. painkillers and anti-inflammatories for instance. Simply, we are specialists in different fields, think of your body like a car – Chiropractors specialise in tuning up your engine (e.g. mechanical pains) and Doctors generally specialise looking at your fuel (e.g. heart, blood pressure, diabetes, stomachs).

Very few GP’s are trained in manipulative treatments and so very few are in the same position as Chiropractors in being able to decide when you can use manual treatments and which ones, and when you ought not to.  The differences in our training reflects this as both professions spend different lengths of times on certain subjects.

A proven track record

WellBeing has worked with large organisations – Public sector with several thousand employees – and small businesses who have only a few employees.  It can be argued that  the smaller the business the greater the impact of musculoskeletal problems can have.

31 million working days lost each year through musculoskeletal injury – is your business part of this statistic?*

A total of 131 million days were lost due to sickness absences in the UK*.  The main cause for lost working days was musculoskeletal conditions (such as back, neck and joint pain), leading to 31 million days lost*.  The next most important cause was minor illnesses such as coughs and colds (27 million days lost), followed by stress, anxiety or depression, at 15 million days lost.

This figure represents a huge loss, and we understand that as a business owner you are trying your best to improve your productivity while reducing your business costs in this very competitive economy. After all, global competition is really putting a pressure on our local community business owners – small, medium or large, all businesses are facing the same competitive challenges in England.

Providing cost effective health care solutions for our local business community and talking with many business owners just like you, we have found that an often overlooked way to help reduce costs for your business is to tackle the health management of your current workforce. We can offer you two service levels:-

  • Reactive health management – treating injuries and pain, helping employees stay at work or helping them back to work as quickly as possible.
  • Proactive health management – this can for some be the best line of defence for lost work days due to illness and injury. This could be achieved through a simple assessment of your current business needs and operations, perhaps some simple lifting/computer set up advice or general exercise plans for your workforce. WellBeing Clinics health care solutions could help improve your business outcomes, workforce productivity and could actually help save money for your business in the long run.

This may seem like a contradiction but spending money (on something that is probably perceived by management as a luxury) could help to save money, but the fact of the matter is WellBeing’s Chiropractors could help your company save money and help it run more efficiently. We are very cost effective and if you have a company medical insurance scheme, we may even be ‘free’ as you have already paid for it with your scheme fees.

Consider having WellBeing on board as an important extension to the arm of your HR and Health and Safety dept. It can provide you the employer, with peace of mind knowing that you have gone beyond your duty of care, which in the unlikely event that a claim is made against your company would add considerable weight to your defence.

WellBeing are experts in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all manner of musculoskeletal aches and pains from head to toe – we don’t just do bad backs! Our experience of working with companies over the years has told us they rarely manage musculoskeletal illness and all its implications very well.
