The Healthy Working UK website provides general practitioners and other healthcare professionals with timely access to information, guidance and training on the management of health and work. This is a one stop shop with searchable catalogues of leaflets, guidance, learning resources, and information on local and national services available. Together, these create an excellent launch pad to answer any questions GPs may have on the fit note and on all matters concerning health and work.
This has been developed by the Faculty in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Society of Occupational Medicine.
Healthy Working UK newsletter
This was launched in June 2012 to provide updates for GPs. The first issue looks at the fit note – and where we are 2 years on, the prevalence of occupational asthma, the impact of obesity on job prospects and the increase in mortality risk due to exposure to silica dust.
