Costs of Ill Health

In 2006 around 175 million working days were lost due to illness and it is estimated that the annual economic costs of sickness absence and worklessness is over £100 billion.  (Working for a healthier tomorrow, Department of Health, March 2008). 

Sickness Absence

Depending on the context, workers who are off work for between 4 - 12 weeks have a 10-40% risk of being off work at one year
