Single Health and Work Gateway Pilot – Fife and Dundee

The Single Health and Work Gateway is a 2 year trial of a new access channel and enhanced and aligned core health and work services. This will act as a single point of contact for health and work support for people in Fife and Dundee, as well as employers, healthcare professionals and Job Centre Plus. It will allow people with health issues or disability who are struggling to stay at work or recently unemployed, to get fast access to support and intervention. The project includes a full evaluation process and predictive analytics element.

The Single Health and Work Gateway is for people who are:
•  at risk of falling out of employment due to  health conditions/disability
• recently unemployed/economically inactive due to health conditions/disability.

Employers in the Fife or Dundee City area who require general or specific advice and support on health, disability and work issues can also access this through the Single Gateway.

A partnership approach will ensure the smooth implementation of the project. A national team within Scottish Government is working closely with local project leads, teams, services and wider partners in each pilot location. A programme of supporting improvement work will help ensure that individuals and businesses who need support are able to access this at the earliest stage possible. A predictive analytics triage tool will be developed to improve the way in which we can identify and "triage" people who are at risk of falling out of work.
