These include the Department of Health and Social Care’s Prevention Is Better Than Curepaper; the Department of Work and Pensions’ Improving Live: The Future of Work, Health and Disability; the Taylor review into modern working practices, published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and the Stevenson/ Farmer review of mental health in the workplace, published jointed by the DWP and DHSC.
