This chapter establishes why the question of nurses’ health is important and sets out the analytical themes that underpin its discussion. The management of nurses’ sickness has recently been targeted as a crucial way National Health Service trusts can save money. This new financial focus on the care of nurses’ health emphasises the need for managers to understand the links between health and organisational performance and, as a result, to remodel their provision of occupational welfare to include a much stronger preventative emphasis than in the past.
