The UK government launched 'Fit for Work' in 2015 to assist GPs and employers keep employees in work.In theory sounds good but the execution of these projects by the government are very bad and usually a failure. I would be supportive of this if done sensibly and intelligently if people who could do some work be supported. No sensible person could dispute that people who could work should. However it is probably another one of the Goverment's initiatives into forcing ill people into work (when they need time off) and making them more disabled in the long term. They will probably deny the person's illness and claim that they are fit and should work regardless of the ability. They have provided a library of advice and refer to CFS as Chronic Fatigue. Health Management Ltd are part of Maximus http://fitforwork.org/about/ What is Fit for Work? Fit for Work is a Government-funded initiative. Fit for Work is designed to support people in work with health conditions and help with sickness absence. Being in work is an important contributor to good health. The longer someone is off sick, the harder it is for them to get back to work. Research suggests that being out of work for long periods of time is damaging to social and financial wellbeing, and health. Who is delivering Fit for Work? Fit for Work is being delivered in England and Wales by Health Management Ltd and in Scotland by the Scottish Government. In Scotland the service is called Fit for Work Scotland.
