Sick absence is costing UK industry £13 Billion per year, with 164 million working days lost.
We at Doctors on wheels can make home visits to staff that have called in sick to make an independent assessment of that member of staff and report back to the employer on their condition.
A member of staff can go 7 days on a self certificate and report back to work on the 8th day without any questions being asked. We would recommend that your company policy could be that on the 3rd day of sickness you are asking your employee for permission for one of our doctors to visit them on the 4th day.
By having this policy in place you would find that staff would return back to work sooner with the overall sick absence dropping reducing the cost to your business.
