The Fit for Work service has announced that from 15 December 2017, Fit for Work will no longer be running its referral and assessment service. All of the advice and guidance elements of Fit for Work remain in place. Employers, employees and GPs will continue to be able to use the same Fit for Work helpline, browsing online resources, emailing a question to case managers and web chat, which offer general health and work advice as well as support on sickness absence.
