Read our response to the Department of Health and Department of Work and Pensions consultation on their green paper, work, health and disability: improving lives. The green paper sets out why change is needed by employers, the welfare system, health and care providers and society as a whole. The paper considers the relationship between health, work and disability, and recognises that health is important for all and that it can be a subjective issue.
Our response to this green paper has been informed through engaging with employers - gathering intelligence through our health and wellbeing and diversity and inclusion networks, and HR directors across the NHS on the areas of recruitment and retention of the NHS workforce.
