What problems can they help with?
Staying Well at Work supports the prevention and management of physical ill health, mental health, rehabilitation and long term conditions. They provide clinical support for people so that they can return to or continue to work.
The service offers direct access to specialist support at no cost to you 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.
- Counselling: 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.
- Mental Health & Employment Coaching: professional coaches are able to support individuals to overcome barriers to enable a return to work/remain in work. We will directly help individuals with their physical recovery whilst also nurturing and aiding their mental health and wellbeing. We can provide people with a combination of advocacy (such as support at work related meetings), one-to-one coaching and exercise planning.
- 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.
