Cover Magazine - Group risk industry reacts to 'Improving Lives' roadmap

By Fiona Murphy 1 December 2017.

Group risk experts have reacted to the government's release of its roadmap which followed up on the 'Improving Lives Green' paper.

Ministers had previously engaged with the group risk industry.
 
Full details of the roadmap can be found here-  the changes including wider certification so healthcare professionals, not just GPs, will now be able to issue Fit Notes to patients. 

Raluca Boroianu-Omura, Assistant Director, Head of Protection and Health, Association of British Insurers, said:

"We agree with the Government that ‘for our nation to reach its full potential, every one of its citizens much reach theirs'. We welcome the Government's commitment to increase employment for people with disabilities by one million and to promote inclusive workplaces.

"It is encouraging to see that group income protection insurance (GIP) is recognised as part of the solution. GIP is an affordable product which can help all employers create positive workplaces, with the emphasis on preventing ill health and, when this does occur, reacting promptly to support employees and businesses.
