Research shows that early intervention is the key to helping employees back into the workplace but that only 20% of UK businesses have access to occupational health services.
The Government has completed its roll out of its new Fit for work scheme, which gives GPs and employers the ability to refer employees who are absent (or likely to be absent) for 4 weeks or more to free Occupational Health services.
This scheme affects every employer – even if you have your own occupational health scheme in place. We’ll be looking at what the changes mean for you and telling you what you need to know, including how to access the service, what new financial help is available to employers, how it works together with your own occupational health scheme, and what new support is available.
This event will ensure you have a good understanding of what’s
changing and the new help available - it will provide a practical overview of the Government’s new Fit for Work scheme, who is eligible for the scheme, the new help available, the changes you need to make to your policies and how it will work alongside your existing occupational health provision.
Attending this event will give you an invaluable insight into these changes and equip you with the key skills needed to manage it in your workplace.
