Please describe how you have supported staff with chronic conditions or those with unpaid caring responsibilities over the last year. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section
The process for referring staff to OH has been updated. This is to ensure that staff are referred at the earliest opportunity. Staff are referred to OH following a 2 week period of absence (previously 4 weeks) and day 1 referral to OH takes place for any work related health condition e.g. an injury sustained at work or staff reporting symptoms of work related stress.
The Trusts absence data in 2013/2014 showed a high percentage of staff off work as a result of a musculo-skeletal injury/condition.
The OH Manager led a project for the implementation of fast track referral to physiotherapy services from the 01/09/2014. The Trust supported a business plan to introduce this service for staff. The Trust has 2 dedicated occupational qualified physiotherapists providing an excellent and robust service for staff. The waiting time on average for an appointment is 0-3 days and in the first 6 months of the physiotherapy service the cost of absence due to MSK saved the Trust £52,000
