1 Work after a Stroke Quality marker 16 of the National Stroke Strategy, Return to Work, says, 'People who have had a stroke and their carers are enabled to participate in paid, supported and voluntary employment'.

2 Studies show that work is good for physical and mental health. The inter-relationship between health, work and well-being was recognised by the Commissioning Framework for Well-being. The workplace allows people both economic benefits and valuable social relationships. Many workplaces could offer simple, reasonable adjustments to enable people who have had a stroke to return to work, and are required to do so under the Disability and Discrimination Act 1995' (page 47, National Stroke Strategy, 2007)

3 Advice to stay off work is a major clinical intervention with potentially serious long- term consequences Disability following stroke can often be accommodated at work with appropriate adjustments and support Planning and supporting return to work are important parts of clinical management (Advising Patients about Work, TSO 2007)

4 Key points A person does not need to be ready to get a job, return to work or be 100% fit to access support. You can benefit from support at a very early stage Finding out about work will not affect benefit entitlement You will be supported to work at your own pace and not be pressured into taking a job or returning to work
