Mental Health and employment
As the largest public sector employer in the UK, the NHS can make a significant
contribution to combating discrimination against people with mental health
problems. This will not only benefit the individuals concerned, but can also
have a positive impact on the diversity of the workforce and the experience the
NHS is able to offer patients.
The Mental Health and employment section provides NHS managers and occupational health professionals with the tools they need to assess the suitability of persons having mental health problems who wish to work in the NHS or enter training or who are already working in the service.
