Specialist Staff Psychology Service, Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
The Specialist Staff Psychology Service offers a stand-alone service to staff at Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (referred into via Occupational Health). This may include traumatised, highly distressed staff, high risk employees, and those on or at risk of long-term sickness absence. The team also provides responsive support after a critical incident. The aim of the service is to keep people in work or enable them to return more quickly. It demonstrates very positive outcomes for staff as well as clearly saving on sickness absence costs.
