Healthshare have developed a free to all website based platform to help encourage patients to keep fit and well whilst they are waiting for surgery. It is packed full of helpful information in easy video and picture formats for patients on surgical wait lists.

The platform includes an introduction from Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Simon Thompson, followed by sections on education, exercise programmes, pain management suggestions and strategies, and the importance of wellbeing on overall health.

If you are needing help gathering all the information you need on what to do prior to surgery then this platform should help you.

Initial feedback from current Healthshare patients, that this has been trialed this with, have responded in a very positive way to the information.

One patient said: “I found the platform easy to use and helpful with showing me the exercises. The video’s were great and I definitely felt like I was more prepared for my second hip replacement than I had been for my first”.
