Last chance to refer patients to Working Win: the health-led employment trial - closes 31 October 2019

Time is running out to refer patients to Working Win: the health-led employment trial. Patients who are eligible to take part in the Working Win trial must have completed their first appointment by 5pm on 31 October.

The trial is testing a new type of employment support for people with mild to moderate, physical and mental health conditions. Both employed and unemployed people are eligible, as long as they are over the age of 18 and registered with a GP.

Referrals should be made by 30 October to give patients the opportunity to have their first appointment before the deadline on the following day. The Working Win team will be providing extra appointments on the final day to cope with demand and initial appointments can take place on Skype, at the patient’s home, or in a café or public place. We do recommend referrals are made as soon as possible if you believe Working Win could help a patient.

The trial is a randomised control trial, patients will be part of either the test group or the control group. Those in the test group will receive individual placement support to help them find or maintain a job alongside their health conditions for up to 12 months. Those in the control group will be signposted to existing employment support services.
