There is considerable evidence that enabling people to return to work is good for their long term health.  Worklessness can cause poor health and health inequality.  However, many patients require active support to be able to return to work or to continue working with a medical condition.

For the majority, GPs are the trusted first point of contact and guidance for those with such health problems.  Doctors have a duty of care to act in the best interests of their patient and there is evidence that GPs find sickness absence management particularly challenging and may be unsure of what they and the General Practice team should do.  This can be a source of conflict in the consultation. 

The purpose of this training is to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of GPs in dealing with clinical issues relating to work and health; to ensure that they are aware of their responsibilities in this area and to signpost additional means of support which will enable them and their teams to be confident that they are providing the best possible patient care.
