York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - reducing sickness absence


17 / 04 / 2015

This case study outlines how York Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has reduced sickness absence by 32 per cent. Linking its health and wellbeing strategy to efficiency savings and board commitment, the trust has ensured that it is supporting and enabling staff to be healthy and develop proactive sickness management.

This work has since been recognised as a good example of best practice at the Leading Workforce Thinking Conference in 2009, was runner up for HPMA award 2010, and has been included as a best practice example in the Health at Work – an independent review of sickness absence report by Dame Carol Black and David Frost CBE published in November 2011.
