Cost of NHS workforce back pain revealed9th February 2011
The charity BackCare has warned that NHS staff who injure their backs cost taxpayers more than £400 million each year in staff absence and wasted training.
It suggests at a time when the health service is required to make major savings, large amounts of money could be saved simply by taking a closer look at the wellbeing of the workforce. Research suggests that over 80,000 nurses sustain back injuries at work each year.
