Helpine Update - Friday 1st May 2020
The WHSCT Staff Psychological Support Line has been operating for one month and will continue to offer assistance to all HSC staff including local GP Practices, Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and the Independent Sector.
Over the course of this month staff from all levels of service and in various job roles have been seeking support. We have noticed an increase in anxieties for all staff. Concerns highlighted include Covid-19 anxieties, returning to work at this unusual time, redeployment, caring for shielding family members while continuing to work and the re-emergence of past psychological difficulties.
Contact the Staff Psychological Support Line by:
- Telephone: 028 7161 6112 (option 3).
- Or email: COVIDPsychological.Support@westerntrust.hscni.net
The Support Line will continue to run 9am-5pm Monday– Friday.
If you are experiencing psychological or emotional challenges during this time please let us care for you, as you care for others.
