In its drive to get rid of ‘Sick Note Culture’ and help people stay in employment rather than drift into long-term sickness, the new ‘Fit Note’ has been launched.
There is now a 12-week consultation on its design. As an example it is suggested that if an employee has a problem with mobility, eg back pain, then the doctor could suggest a sitting down job rather than standing or lifting.
The idea is to try and get away from the two choice decision ‘fit to work/unfit to work’. It is planned to be introduced in Spring 2010 and will be computer generated in GP’s surgeries (a pleasant change from the attempts to decipher GP’s handwriting).
