Working Health Service NHS FV is a return to work service that will support you to return to work or remain at work when you are struggling due to your health.
We can provide help and advice when planning a return to work post Covid19, as well as any other illness or injury.
At present we are providing Case management (including employer liaison), Vocational rehabilitation mental health support, counselling and Physiotherapy (remote via Near me) as well as being there when you are discharged from hospital to help you to return to work after illness/surgery.
The service is primarily to support people that are self-employed or work for businesses that employ less than 250 people; however at this time we are supporting most people that do not have occupational health at work. If you are unemployed we ask that you speak to your job center advisor about the Fair Start service they can help you to gain work and address health barriers.
The free confidential registration telephone number is 0800 019 2211 and select option 1 Working health services.
WHSS is a Self-referral service so you do not have to ask your GP to refer you and it fine to pass the number on to Friends and family that would benefit from the service.
