What is the AHP Advisory Fitness for Work Report?
Please also see our Frontline article: Patients fast-tracked back to workplace
The report has been designed to help you to provide information on the functional impact of a patient’s reported problem and to suggest options that may support the patient to remain in, or return to, work.
As an AHP writing this report, you have a central role in providing work related advice and recommendations. The report has been designed to use your specific skills as a problem solver to overcome barriers for employees staying in, or returning to, work.
This report will advise your patient, their employer and GP (subject to the patient’s consent) on the issues reported by the patient as causing difficulty. The content of the report should therefore focus on specific work related difficulties.
