Getting help

Are you worried about a colleague? Have you noticed that they’re not quite themselves, they’re struggling with issues in their personal life or that they are finding it hard to cope with what they have experienced during the pandemic and the pressures of their job?

If you’re a manager or work in occupational health, you can refer a member of staff to the Devon Wellbeing Hub. To do this, we will need you to provide us with contact details for the member of staff you wish to refer and an explicit statement that they have consented to be referred to us. We will then contact them to take further details and book a wellbeing assessment.  

What happens next?

Your colleague will speak with a qualified and understanding NHS clinician who’ll compassionately listen to how they are feeling and any concerns they may have. Together, they will develop a Colleague Wellbeing Plan with their next steps. We will then be able to refer and signpost them to a wide range of services available across Devon, including services provided by your own employer; the NHS and other statutory services. 

Referring a colleague is simple, get in touch by emailing us at dpt.devonwellbeing@nhs.net, or by calling on 0300 303 5455 – we will also be happy to answer any further questions you have. You can also refer a colleague by filling in our referral form.

For urgent mental health support 24/7 please contact the Plymouth First Response Service or the Devon First Response Service, depending on where you live.
