How Fit for Work benefits GPs

A vital line of support for patients wanting to return back to work after sickness absence

Fit for Work in a nutshell




How GP practices stand to benefit


In the words of one CCG …

“Fit for Work is a welcome and innovative project which attempts to speed and facilitate the return to work for patients who have been off work for four weeks. Many organisations do not have an occupational health service and it can sometimes be difficult for GPs to fully assess patients’ functionality in relation to their occupation. This new system makes it much easier and smoother.”

(Dr Dan Roper, NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group Chair)
