This is not an area of work that the organisation has previously done much work on however our absence policy and absence management procedures support staff with long term/chronic conditions and we have examples of where we have made adjustments in the workplace to accommodate cases and enabled individuals to continue in their roles.The organisation is planning a health at work day in the new year where we plan to provide health education for staff which will include information on some chronic and long term conditions as well as an opportunity for some health assessments such as BMI, cholesterol and blood pressure checks.The organisation will also look at our policies and ensure that we have covered this or write a policy specifically looking at the management of long term/chronic health conditions. We will also provide managers with additional guidance on how to work with individuals and hr in managing any such cases.
