WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TREATMENTS PROVIDED UNDER EIS AREN’T ENOUGH TO GET THE EMPLOYEE BACK TO WORK?

There will be some conditions which may not be fully resolved by the treatment provided under EIS.

EIS provides early intervention; this means that the contact process with the employee will start within 48 hours of referral. The current NHS waiting time for GP referral and onward physiotherapy treatment can be several weeks.

When a diagnosis is made and clinicians have an understanding of the employee’s condition they may suggest that the employee contacts their GP in order to continue their treatment with the NHS after they have used their available EIS treatments.
