14 / 06 / 2016

One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year. Such problems are thought to be one of the highest causes of sickness absence.

At Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust one of the main reasons for referrals to occupational health is psychological illness.

In 2014, the decision was taken to use the trust’s in-house expertise to deliver better psychological support for staff.

Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust launched a staff wellbeing service in September 2014. Its aim was to develop a wide range of interventions that could support staff through emotional or psychological difficulties that impact on their functioning at work.
