A micro business (employing 17 people) in Leicester contacted EMPC Occupational Health Physiotherapy after its van driver had been signed off work for the 6th week and for a further 3 weeks, with back pain by their GP. Urgent assessment, treatment and workplace assessment was arranged and the employee returned to work within 2 days, with an a work rehabilitation plan agreed with all parties, an ongoing treatment plan and an open line of communication to the line manager for ongoing support. The business learnt that a sick note – now called a fit note - is advisory only and neednt prevent earlier return to work. Later that year, the same business referred a warehouse employee with knee pain to us, for assessment and advice, on day 4 of absence. The employee received a course of physiotherapy and returned to work within 2 days, with workplace modifications for 2 weeks and returned to full fitness within 10 days. No GP visit was necessary.Click here for further details on page 2
