March NICE Guidance

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of March.

There is one guideline that may impact on primary care, a public health guideline on long-term sickness absence and incapacity for work.

The guideline is aimed at employers as well as NHS staff in primary care and occupational health. The guidance recommends that employers establish sickness absence policies and appropriate health and safety practices. This will help to ensure that adequate support is given to employees to allow them to return to work as soon as they are able.

Action: Clinicians who are involved in occupational health or who issue sick notes will find this information useful.
