Fit for Work service now being rolled out

Following a trial in Sheffield, the Government’s Fit for Work service (FFW) is now being rolled out nationwide. The purpose of the FFW service is to help employers manage sickness absence more effectively and to help get employees back to work. The new service provides free health and work advice through its website (http://fitforwork.org/) and telephone advice line to help with absence prevention, and free referral for an occupational health assessment for employees who have reached, or whose GP expects them to reach, four weeks of sickness absence.
