Vocational Rehabilitation in NHS Lothian
The “I’m VR” short film has been commissioned by Working Health Services
Lothian. It introduces you to the people behind vocational rehabilitation – from
occupational therapists, physiotherapists and counsellors to employers,
employment rights advisers and GPs.
Work is now recognised as an important social determinant of health, and early
intervention for a person off sick is critical if they are to successfully
return to their job or to purposeful occupation.
“Vocational Rehabilitation is about helping a person with a health problem to
gain, stay at, return to and remain in work – because satisfying work is the
best route for most people to a healthy and fulfilling life.”
