10th November 2010

Findings contained in the latest Health of the Workplace Report from Aviva UK has indicated that GPs are unconvinced of the benefits of issuing patients with fit notes.

The new survey showed that 68% do not believe they will cut absence levels, and almost two-thirds feel ill-equipped to provide them and that since its introduction in April, enthusiasms for the scheme has diminished. Of 200 GPs surveyed, 68% said they did not believe fit notes would be effective in cutting absence levels, compared to 54% last year prior to their introduction.
