Recognising rehabilitation is important and we can take realistic steps and not jump into introducing new systems where there's no evidence to say they will work
Once we know what will deliver people back into the workplace, and once we know how to deliver that support to people effectively, then the government is fully committed to put that down and stand behind.
The evidence for vocational rehabilitation and return to work is inconclusive and unclear.
It's not arguing for or against vocational rehabilitation, but some stakeholders, including insurers, need more information on the business case to support them taking a leap of faith, and so government has got to accept that and do some more work.
Not having evidence is not a reason to do nothing, and government has made that point very clear in the framework document.
We need a system that will be activated as soon as someone is made injured or made ill, and therefore they deliver quickly the rehabilitation they want.
