The article presents information on the benefits of employment advisers in general practitioner (GP) surgeries in Great Britain. Placing employment advisers in GP surgeries can help to support some patients' return to the workplace and may also have a positive impact on the number of nurse and doctor consultations. The employment advisers scheme was developed in 2001 by charity Tomorrow's People and such success stories have attracted interest from government departments. Similar pilots are now being run by the Department for Work and Pensions, as a branch of its Pathways to Work initiative. This is designed to reduce the number of people claiming incapacity benefit by helping claimants back into the workforce.
