Reducing sickness in the NHS

Andy Shettle from Software Europe highlights a report on how to reduce sickness absence.
 
The cost of staff absence to the NHS due to poor health is £2.4bn a year. In addition, a recent investigation has shown there is a relationship between health and well-being and performance on key issues such as patient satisfaction.
 
If the NHS as a whole was able to save just 1% of its annual sickness bill by reducing absences the savings would be significant. So how do we go about reducing that sickness and absence rate further? 
 
Software Europe has taken a look at the unique challenge of the NHS and how many services are often reactive and focused on responding to sickness and ill-health rather than promoting a positive culture of workplace health and safety.
