Employee Support Services

This section is intended for the nurses and midwives currently employed within the public service.

The Employee Support Programme (ESP) is a support service available for public employees who may be experiencing personal or work-related difficulties. The service addresses issues such as stress, mental health difficulties, relationship and family concerns, bereavement support, alcohol and substance misuse, and any other difficulty that may be affecting their wellbeing.

The service is provided by a team of professionals and is confidential and free of charge for public employees. Employees do not require their supervisor’s permission to use ESP services when it is in their own time. Employees may use ESP services during their working hours by availing themselves of vacation leave or by requesting temporary absence with their supervisor’s approval. Employees who receive approval to access the service during working hours will be provided with confirmation of attendance.

For more information or to request an appointment please call 2200 1210 or send an email to esp.opm@gov.mt or visit www.esp.gov.mt.

In addition to the above services, some entities do offer in-house services.  Nurses and midwives are advised to seek assistance from their superiors should they wish to make use of such in-house services. 

For any additional directions please feel free to contact the Nursing Services Directorate.
