A case-study approach is being used, to analyse the experiences of people who successfully re-enter employment after a period out of work, and to develop understanding of the factors that unsuccessfully supported that transition. The research has to principal aims: To assess the impact of employment on the health of individuals, including on their wellbeing, health behaviours and demands on health services. There is a body of evidence about the impact of unemployment on health, but there has been perhaps less research on the impact of employment and, in particular, how transitions from unemployment to work impact on health. To identify the way in which key services, delivered both individually and alongside other services, have been instrumental in moving people with health issues towards and into employment, and helping to sustain and progress them once in employment.
