Return-to-work service

Monday 6th July 2015

A return-to-work service to help workers facing long-term sickness absence has gone live in Wales. The free Fit for Work service (which is being gradually rolled-out across Wales and England by Health Management Limited on behalf of the DWP) allows GPs in Wales to offer patients (who have been, or are likely to be, off work for four weeks or more) a referral to the service, which includes an in-depth assessment, followed by a Return to Work Plan and managed support to get back to their jobs.
