Legal & General Group Protection partners with Physio Med

'Rehabilitation, early intervention and high-quality treatment'
Supporting employees unable to work due to musculoskeletal conditions

Legal & General has today announced its partnership with occupational physiotherapy provider, Physio Med, to provide support for employees who are unable to work long-term due to musculoskeletal conditions.

Physio Med will play a role in supporting L&G's group income protection early intervention and rehabilitation services.

Physio Med has a national network of 780 physiotherapy clinics and over 2,500 physiotherapists, and they claim that 98% of the UK population can access a practice within 30 minutes of travel.

Employees experiencing musculoskeletal problems as a result of work, domestic issues, sporting injuries or accidents can use the service and will be seen within five days of referral, said L&G.

Last year, the insurer helped 631 employees back to work within the deferred period, and a further 269 outside of this period, with the support of the early intervention service.


Vanessa Sallows, benefits & governance director, Legal & General, said:

"At Legal & General Group Protection we take great pride in our commitment to supporting workplace wellbeing through speedy diagnosis and treatment. Each year, over six million working days are lost due to musculoskeletal issues, and we want to reduce these figures."

"By focusing on rehabilitation, early intervention and high-quality treatment, we can make a tangible difference in helping people return to work where appropriate, benefiting both employer and employee."

"We understand the detrimental challenges that can arise from time off work for both businesses and individuals, which is why we continue to partner with market leaders, contributing to healthy and productive workforces."

As the situation with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to provide help and support wherever possible. With our technology, free guides and videos, we feel we can make a contribution to the situation today.


In order to continue to provide physiotherapy services to our clients past, present and future, we are now offering an alternative provision in the form of a Telehealth service, which will allow patients to speak to senior physiotherapists for advice, motivation and recommendations of techniques to help manage their conditions.

Remote DSE Assessments

Physio Med’s video link DSE assessment has been developed to provide an effective method of assessing an employee’s ‘at home’ workstation without the need for a physio visit in person. See our general well-being page for in-depth guidance on correct sitting posture and working at a desk. For an in-depth video for setting up a home office please contact us.

Well-being zone

Navigate to our well-being zone for a wide range of exercises to manage existing conditions. Our Managing Musculoskeletal guides and videos have been developed by our chartered physiotherapists to help those suffering from pain and limited mobility suffered from a recent musculoskeletal accident, injury or trauma. Designed to reduce pain, improve range of movement, and to recover from injury quickly and safely.

If you would like more information about how our services work or are interested in accessing this service please call 0113 229 1300 or email and someone will contact you directly.
