The impact of long term conditions on employment and the wider UK economy

This report looks at the economic implications of six long term conditions (psoriasis, diabetic macular oedema, asthma, schizophrenia, heart failure and multiple sclerosis) in the UK, focusing specifically on the effects on employment for those of working age. It presents data on the direct and indirect costs to the UK society and, where the data exists, projects the likely impact the condition will have in the future.
