Make an EWS Referral

The Employee Wellbeing Service (EWS) provides a free, confidential, on-site service for Cardiff and Vale employees.

You can access the service by filling in a Self Referral Form. If you would like a paper copy of this form call us on 02921 844465 and we can send you one.
Confidentiality is important to us. We do not share our record with any other person, service or department in the UHB and your notes do not form part of your personal, medical or Occupational Health file.

Who can use this service?

All staff employed by Cardiff and Vale UHB are eligible. EWS offers a range of interventions for people with mild to moderate mental health conditions. Whilst the service is available to everyone employed by Cardiff and Vale it is not appropriate for everyone. If you are not sure as to whether this service is the right one for you please contact us and we can advise. Health for Health Professionals Wales also offers support for healthcare professionals in Wales.

Where will I be seen?

Due to Covid-19, we are no longer able to see clients for face to face appointments. Instead, we are offering secure video and telephone appointments. For this, you will need to find a
location where you can stay for the duration of the appointment in private without interruption. Please ensure that the number we have for you is the one you wish to be contacted on. If you are struggling to find a private place for your appointment, please discuss this with us when booking your appointment. 

I’ve filled in a referral form, what happens next?

In most cases you will be invited for a resource appointment. However if we believe that you would benefit from a different service we will contact you to give you more information. For more information click here: What to expect
