Today society in the UK is faced with the challenges associated with an aging workforce and increased number of people claiming Incapacity Benefit; this position is unsustainable. Currently there is recognition to assist those in employment to prevent or delay their move towards Incapacity Benefit. Approximately half of the Scottish workforce is employed in small and medium enterprises but there is very little, if any, access to workplace vocational rehabilitation services. The overall all aim of the investigation was to pilot a model of workplace vocational rehabilitation suitable for implementation by Health Boards throughout Scotland. This study reports on one key aim of implementing the model, namely, the development and implementation of a web database to collect patient information in real time, making it accessible to health practitioners across several local Health Board sites and using the data for evaluation purposes to inform Government policy makers.
