Occupational Health Helpline

Providing professional support for employees with stress from day one

Supporting employees with stress and helping them to return to work is a real challenge for all kinds of organisations. For this reason we’ve launched a comprehensive stress prevention programme that makes a real difference from the very first day of an employee’s absence.

Focusing purely on stress related absence, Active Care provides employees with positive and proactive support from a team of health professionals to help them return to work earlier. Our plan also safeguards the interests of employers, increases protection from tribunals and provides managers and HR teams with specialist OH helpline support across a range of issues.

Designed to help employers with their duty of care, our innovative new plan can either be taken out as a standalone product or as an add-on to an existing health cash plan.

What are the key benefits?

  • Proactively supports and engages with employees who are absent with stress
  • Professional OH support from day one of absence
  • Early intervention helps employees to return to work as soon as possible

How does it work?

  • An employer receives a fit note when an employee goes off work with stress
  • On day one, a qualified OH Nurse contacts the employee and through a telephone or webcam consultation gains an understanding of their needs, recommends treatments and provides support, guidance and information
  • The clinical team provides a written report and helps HR to make the return to work as smooth as possible
  • In 94.7% of Health Assured cases, employees have gone back to work within 14 days
