Occupational Health

The Occupational Health Service is provided by the team from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. We work in partnership with other NHS Occupational Health providers across the region to deliver services to Trust employees working in all Divisions within the Trust to provide support to our staff. 

Staff or Managers can make referrals via email with the Trust’s Occupational Health Service. This service can help managers and staff to identify what can be done to support their health and wellbeing needs, to enable them to safely stay in or return to their workplace. Guidance on how to make a referral can be found on the Occupational Health pages on Connect.

Managers can also access a telephone helpline where they can have an initial conversation with the service that will help them to assess if a referral is needed at that time and identify potential approaches to support the health and wellbeing of their staff. 

 

 

Post incident Peer Support Programme

We provide additional support to our staff to be able to give the time and the space at times when needed with our colleagues and trained facilitators.
