UK Occupational Health Report Overview

NHS pressures highlight importance of alternative health services such as OH

Ongoing pressure on the NHS means employers are increasingly using proactive occupational health services to fill the void and keep people in work. More businesses are looking at preventative health and wellbeing support as opposed to the more traditional approach that looked at offering support at the crisis point – such as needing medical treatment, whether for physical or mental health. Virtual GP services, EAPs and various health and wellbeing apps have become an increasing part of an employers’ package.

Promoting preventative healthcare measures will reduce absenteeism costs

Changing employer mindsets of focusing on helping employees at the point of crisis to intervening at the initial signs of ill-health or wellbeing will provide opportunities for those in the OH industry. OH providers should market and promote preventative support offerings to companies by highlighting how an effective OH offering will reduce absenteeism costs and improve productivity.
