Friday, 26 May, 2006

David Ruffley MP has today has today congratulated the Back on Track team at West Suffolk Hospital on the receipt of a 'Health Enterprise East' certificate for Service Delivery.

Back on Track is a scheme devised by physiotherapists at West Suffolk Hospital to help people overcome their fear of movement, giving them control over their condition and enabling them to return to their normal lives.

David said:

'I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the Back on Track programme on the receipt of this certificate.

'The classes offered allow people suffering from back pain, who are afraid to move, to gain confidence and move more independently. Once this fear is overcome suffers can gain control over their condition and begin to return to their normal lives.

'I am pleased that the programme has achieved this recognition and look forward to hearing of its future success.'
