Health, work and well-being – Caring for our future
A strategy for the health and well-being of working age people (2005).
In November 2007 we met with health practitioners and businesses around the UK to identify ways to improve people’s health and help more people who develop health problems to remain in or quickly return to work.
As part of the Black Review, we commissioned research and analysis to help build the necessary evidence base.
