Government and policy developments

The Faculty is actively engaged in considering the content and implications of the Sickness Absence Review, the publication of which in late November prompted us to hold a debate, encompassing occupational health professionals, employers and unions. The report of this is available to members via the link below.

We shall be contributing to the ongoing discussion with Government about the Review in partnership with the Society, and the President would welcome the views of members, as part of that.
We also continue to work with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to seek changes in the Health and Social Care Bill, highlighting to Government ongoing concerns, particularly with regard to the threat to integrated patient care, the importance of the Secretary of State’s responsibility to provide health care for all and the need to maintain education and training as part of a comprehensive health service.
