Occupational Health:



“As a Company we have used SPS Clinics for a number of years and have always been very pleased with his treatment which enabled our staff to return to work as soon as possible following injury. Ray is keen to advise on exercises to do between sessions which, as long as you adhere to them, facilitate an even faster recovery”. 


SPS provide an excellent Service, not just fixing/stopping the pain but looking for the reasons and then providing exercises and resources to help prevent reoccurrence, thus keeping our workforce at work




First class assessment.  Excellent treatments.   Practical and realistic approach to Occupational Health Care.  Ray is an excellent physiotherapist and injury manager – a true asset.

Steve Wood. Coach Club Lancashire Rugby (Juniors) & Director of Rugby TRUFC

Raymond, thank you for all your efforts and professional commitment in providing the highest level of physiotherapy support for our junior and senior players at Tarleton rugby club. The people who have had the benefit of your treatment have commented on how it has helped them recover quicker and with less discomfort; as far as we are concerned this is a very positive commitment and your service is a real asset and enhancement to the ‘rugby experience’ we provide. I hope we can continue to develop our ‘working relationship’ for many years to come.

Calavera Rugby 7’s Team

“I have had the pleasure of Ray’s assistance for both of the Rugby teams I manage (Tarleton RUFC 1st XV and Calavera 7’s) without his help these teams would not be able to compete at the level they do. For Tarleton RUFC Ray is the appointed club physio and he does this out of the goodness of his heart. Without Ray we would be without key players for vital games. He gives up his free time to assist players at training and on match days. He assesses players’ injuries and issues a recovery programme so that players can get back to playing quicker.

For Calavera 7s Ray attends the tournaments with the team making sure all players are in top shape to play. Rugby 7s is hard on the body mainly because it is usually over a couple of days with short matches and long breaks in between. A player could get injured in one match with a visit to Ray to work his magic we will see them on the pitch for the next game scoring tries
