New Escape Pain programme for Kent

Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust is introducing a free six week programme to help people experiencing long-term hip or knee joint pain to lead a more active lifestyle.

The ESCAPE-pain programme involves a combination of education, exercise and specialist advice from a physiotherapist.

Sessions will run twice a week in Tunbridge Wells, Herne Bay and Gravesend.

The Tunbridge Wells programme will begin in late September with sessions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

The Herne Bay programme will begin in early October with sessions on Monday and Thursday mornings.

The Gravesend programme will begin in November with sessions on Monday and Thursday afternoons.

Anyone who is over the age of 55 and has been experiencing hip or knee pain for at least 6 months can ring 0300 123 0854 or email kentchft.physiopatients@nhs.net to begin the six week programme.
