Improving workability – hot tips

Posted on Updated on

Most of the clients I see are struggling with workability in some way.  They regularly need days off work, due to a fluctuating condition or a build up of fatigue, or are struggling to keep up with work and being monitored under a performance or capability procedure. Some arrive at my door anticipating a disciplinary procedure or job loss. 

It is my opinion that my patients are all experts in themselves – after all, we are all unique and respond to our health and environment differently.

Below is a checklist of things you can do to ensure you are getting the best support possible:

top tips
