Fit for Work provides referred patients with advice regarding appropriate interventions, signposting to relevant services, and a Return to Work Plan exploring health, work and personal factors that might be preventing a return to work. It supports GPs with the clinical management of sickness absence and complements the service offered by GPs to their patients and can reduce the number of repeat Fit Note appointments.
The occupational health professional will produce a Return to Work Plan, which can replace the need for a fit note. The Return to Work Plan will be tailored to your patients’ needs to help them return to work in a way that’s right for them.
