As a member of staff, you can access free and confidential counselling and support services through our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) with Validium.

The Occupational Health Service provides professional advice on work-related health issues to University staff. We are proactive in the prevention of work-related ill health, and so offer a wide range of resources to promote good health and wellbeing.

We also provide specialist guidance and advice to HR officers, heads of departments/sections and supervisors regarding fitness for work and the effect of ill health on an individual's employment.
