The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of November.
There is one guidance document that has an impact in primary care. A public health guideline (QRG) recommends strategies to promote mental wellbeing in work. The guidance makes recommendations for employers of all sizes, employee representative groups and employees themselves to decrease work related stress and improve work efficiency.
Action: Clinicians should be aware of this guideline and consider sign posting patients to work based services, such as occupational health services where these exist.
