FIT TO WORK FORMS


With effect from February 2016 it will be a legal requirement for all surgeries to provide data to Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) on the number of Fit for Work forms that they have provided.  This data will be automatically extracted from our information system.  Please note that the data provided will be fully anonymised and will include:

  • The number of computer-generated fit notes issued;
  • The number of patients recorded as ‘unfit’ or ‘maybe fit’ for work;
  • Fit note duration;
  • Gender;
  • Health condition type;
  • Location – this will be no more specific than e.g. BH23 or Christchurch;
  • Whether your GP recommended any workplace adaptations in order to help your return to work.

We have a legal requirement under the Data Protection Act (DPA) to inform our patients that this data will be provided.
 
Please note that if you have previously recorded an objection for any of your data to be shared, then this will be respected in this situation also.
