Staying Well at Work
Do you live or work in Rhondda Cynon Taf and are you employed by a small business with less than 250 employees?
The Staying Well at Work Service offers a proactive and integrated approach which supports the prevention of physical and mental ill health, whilst supporting rehabilitation and the management of long-term conditions. We provide clinical support for people to improve their daily functioning and symptom management so that they can return to or continue to work.
What problems can they help with?
The service, led by Rhondda Cynon Taf part funded by the European Social Fund through Welsh Government offers direct and rapid access to specialist support at no cost in the following areas:
- Physiotherapy: delivered by professionals who are specialists in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy, Occupational Health and ergonomics. They provide advice and treatment to individuals who are struggling with a MSK problem that is keeping them off work or affecting them at work. They also provide return to work rehabilitation programs for individuals trying to return to physically demanding job roles or environments after a period of sickness absence and/or surgery such as hip and knee replacements.
- Counselling and therapeutic support: skilled therapists that support people with mild to moderate mental health problems and also help them with their plans to return to or remain in work. This service is available to anyone who has any difficulties related to their psychological and emotional wellbeing.
- Occupational Health Advice: able to offer impartial advice and recommendations on managing long and short-term health conditions within the workplace, disability and workplace adjustments to support individuals with their return to work.
As well as 1 to 1 support the service offers access to group workshops to help address a range of Health and Wellbeing issues.
The Staying Well at Work team are able to offer virtual consultations via Attend Anywhere, telephone consultations and face to face appointments where required following a risk assessment in our COVID secure consulting rooms in the communities of Mountain Ash and Ferndale for counselling and Pontypridd for physiotherapy.
