This should be the first port of call for anyone whose employer has signed up to Occupational Health cover from RGIT [service now (2007) believed to have been taken over by Capita Health]. Free and convenient. The physios have in the past been sympathetic to running injuries; will understand your desire to get back in time for the next race and will blast you with ultrasound to help you make it.
To make an appointment call Occupational Health reception (01235 434156).
