Fit for Work roadshow webinars for employers
22 December 2015
Fit for Work is the new voluntary service that offers the wider working population access to occupational health advice and support. GPsand employersthroughout England and Wales can now refer their employed patients and employees who have been, or are likely to be, off sick from work for four weeks or more for a voluntary occupational health assessment.
The occupational health professional will identify obstacles preventing the employee from returning to work. A Return to Work Plan will be agreed providing recommendations tailored to the employee’s needs, which can replace the need for a fit note.
Following a series of roadshows the Fit for Work team have uploaded recordings of two presentations 'Fit for Work for employers' (by Dr Thava) and 'Fit for Work - how we got here' (by David Frost, CBE).
