Fit for Work is a voluntary service that offers the wider working population access to occupational health support. It provides the services of health professionals to people in employment if they have been off for four weeks or more due to sickness. It is aimed at supporting workers by plugging the gap in the provision of occupational health advice and support. This gap was identified in a 2011 report by Dame Carol Black and David Frost CBE.
There are two elements to Fit for Work:
1. Advice: access to health and work advice for employees, employers and GPs through a website and freephone helpline.
2. Assessment: working employees can be referred by their employer for a (45 minute) telephone assessment with an appropriately qualified healthcare professional
