An NHS Trust is offering crybaby staff counselling sessions to get over Britain’s vote to leave the EU.

According to the Daily Mail, nurses and carers at the Oxleas Foundation Trust in South London have been offered professional help after the UK plumped for Brexit.

In an email to staff told employees: “We appreciate that the result of the EU referendum may worry some staff.

“We want to take this opportunity to reassure you that Oxleas values every member of staff equally, regardless of nationality.

“We are committed to ensuring that all members of staff are treated with dignity and respect wherever they work, free from undue stress and anxiety.

“There is likely to be a period of uncertainty for some time following referendum result, but we want to reassure staff that we are here to help and support you.”

Around 3,500 people on the NHS trust’s payroll will get access to free-of -charge, 24-hour counselling service.

Ukip MEP Jane Collins criticised the decision a “an insult to democracy and an insult to people who expect their NHS to deliver healthcare for sick people – not those having referendum-related tantrums.”

“People upset by a referendum result should not be offered a free counselling service when there are people with genuine mental health care needs who are on a waiting list for treatment”.
