MCL Medics - Employee Assistance Programme

 

Staff Support and Counselling


MCL Medics is the University's Employee Assistance Programme provider and they provide a free, confidential and independent resource to help employees balance their work, family and personal lives.  This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by phone, e-mail, online or through their APP and provides information, resources and counselling on any of the challenges that life may bring.

 

The EAP service is strictly confidential. They won’t alert anyone in the employee’s team, department or the University that they have used their services. Employee privacy is important to them, so their records are kept separate from any medical or personnel files ENU or the employee’s doctor keeps. In fact, no one has access to the EAP records except for EAP.  

 

MCL Medics also provides support for line managers for instance with workplace issues such as having difficult conversations and managing difficult situations.

 
Employees can book services discreetly through their app (search MCL Medics EAP), or website, in under a minute to meet with their experts face to face, or online. Ultimately, it’s whatever the employee feels comfortable with. Employees can join the app to benefit from counselling with specialists alongside access to a library of health and wellbeing information. From yoga sessions to science-backed articles, it’s all at employee’s fingertips free of charge. 

 

MCL Medics allow employees to book counselling sessions and manage their own bookings through the App or website. Counselling sessions are also available for immediate family members.

Link with Occupational Health


Our EAP service works in conjunction with the University's Occupational Health (OH) Provider, Optima Health. In some circumstances when a line manager refers an employee to Occupational Health, the OH Adviser may consider that a referral to MCL Medics would also be beneficial, this would be discussed and agreed with the employee prior to actioning.​​​
