Returning to work after an illness can be challenging, but your GP is here to help. Returning to work is beneficial for your health and wellbeing. In fact, taking too much time off work is linked with poorer physical and mental health. The longer you are off work, the less chance you have of returning to work.
Work is an important part of recovering after an illness. You don't have to be 100% fit to return to work. Your GP can work with you and your employer to develop a returning to work plan that suits your health and lifestyle goals.
