HI Daily - Improving Lives strategy welcomed but bolder action needed, says GIP industry

By Emily Perryman 1 December 2017.

Measures include training to support people with mental health conditions.

The government has published a strategy that aims to help people with disabilities and long-term health problems get into work, remain there and progress in their roles.

The measures include widening “fit note” certification to a wider range of healthcare professionals and providing dedicated training for work coaches to support people with mental health conditions.

The strategy, Improving Lives: the Future of Work, Health and Disability, builds on last year’s Work, Health and Disability Green Paper.

The government also said it will respond to all the recommendations made by Lord Stevenson and Paul Farmer CBE in their review in to mental health at work, which called for larger employers to make sure staff have access to services such as employee assistance programmes and talking therapies.
