Straight-forward referral process for new employment trial goes live

Thank you to those practices who have already signed up to refer patients on to the Health-led Employment Trial (Working Win). We are pleased to inform you that the trial has officially launched and the GP referral process is now operational.

For Systm1 practices the form is called “SCR Working Win Referral Form” and has been published centrally on Systm1. For EMIS Web it is in the attached zip file along with some importing instructions (this will also be uploaded locally to Intranets where applicable). Once completed the form should be emailed to workingwin@syha.cjsm.net, which is a secure account.

As you are likely aware from previous correspondence, the trial is testing a new form of employment support, already proven to work for patients with severe mental health conditions, for people who have a physical or mild to moderate mental health condition and/or a disability, with the aim of getting people back into work and able to continue working. South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA) are delivering the trial which officially launched on Thursday 3rd May.

The Health-led Employment Trial is a randomised control trial, meaning people who take part will be randomly placed into one of two research groups. One group will be provided with information about local job services as per usual care, and the other group will be given ongoing employment support from an Employment Specialist. The Employment Specialist will work with the patient to create a holistic job plan with them and meet with them roughly every two weeks to review this plan. They will also help with any difficulties the patient experiences along the way for a period of up to 12 months.

Over two years, the aim is to recruit 7,500 residents across Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield into the trial.
