Physiotherapy Provision

Workplace related sickness and Musculoskeletal injuries affect companies of all sizes. In 2011, The Frost-Black report stated that the cost of sickness to UK businesses and the economy was around £15 billion annually. £13 billion was spent on health related state benefitsand long-term absence made up around 5% of all sickness absence spells.Following the 2011 report, a 2013 audit from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) stated that almost 40% of staff sickness absence was due to Musculoskeletal conditions. Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions (e.g. back pain, neck pain, joint, ligament and muscular conditions) are consistently reported as the most costly type of work-related illness. More recently, statistics from the 16/17 financial year show that there were 609,000 self-reported non-fatal injuries at work. Of these, 175,000 workers were absent for 7 days or more (LSF). The average cost per injury per employee when absent from work stands at £8,200 (HSE).
