WHSS provides free and confidential advice and health support for the self-employed and people working in companies with less than 250 employees.

The service aims to help:

  • employees manage their condition and remain at work
  • a return to work, if a short period of sickness absence occurs
  • prevent them from having further periods of sickness.

Where necessary, the programme can provide quick access to counselling/physiotherapy

Employees will be assigned a case manager to help them through the process. A case manager will:

  • complete a comprehensive assessment
  • develop an action plan
  • co-ordinate treatment
  • liaise with GPs, if required, and other relevant professionals.

The case manager may also provide signposting to services for help and advice on issues such as:

  • housing
  • employment
  • debt management.

All treatments and interventions are delivered in local community venues whenever possible.


Employees can refer themselves to WHSS.
