Private Harley Street Clinic
Stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 57% of the 26.8 million working days lost to the UK economy through work-related ill-health in 2017/2018*. That amounts to 15.4 million working days lost through conditions that are difficult to diagnose and assess and to which HR professionals are having to respond.
At such times, your response is only going to be as good as the information at your disposal and the cost of an ill-judged response might be significant. You need a diagnosis that you can trust and an assessment that offers you clear information upon which you can make decisions.
