Don’t force sick people back to work
Drop any plans to pressure GPs into writing fewer sick notes for people who struggle with long term sickness.
Why is this important?
Decisions over how to manage health and any long-term sickness should be between a patient and their GP. It's horrifying to think the Government could pressure GPs into sending people who are sick back into work.
They say it's to help boost the economy, but targeting sick people instead of corporations like BP and Shell that have made billions in profit, is cruel and short-sighted.
The Government must not include these terrible plans in its Spring budget.
