Prevention is better than the cure


In the first of our case study mini series, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust shares how it reduced sickness absence and presenteeism at work.

The trust placed staff health and wellbeing at the centre of its strategy by implementing core services and additional interventions staff can call upon. The trust believes that by helping staff identify stressors and giving them access to immediate and appropriate support helps reduce the amount of absence days. 

Over two years the new service helped 1,500 staff and made a potential saving of over £906,000 - the equivalent of 10,441 absence days avoided.
