What are SPOC appointments?

  • A confidential appointment with a senior adviser from within the PSU to discuss any difficulties or dilemmas you currently face
  • Details of what you share in the SPOC appointment won't be discussed with member of your team or training programme
  • Appointments usually last up to 45 minutes and are available by phone or virtual platforms (eg Zoom/MS Teams)
  • A SPOC appointment may be suitable if you:
    • want a neutral, safe & private space just to talk freely about a difficult experience you have had or are facing
    • are feeling worried, overwhelmed, stressed or finding it hard to cope at work
    • want guidance about what support may be most helpful
    • want signposting to other resources (within the PSU or externally)
    • want help with finding a useful way forward in your current situation
