Abstract

The UK's recent Improving Lives Green Paper, and the new joint Work and Health Unit that penned it, offers a genuine window of opportunity for much-needed transformative change in service user experiences and system performance around health-related unemployment. Its analysis of the current system problems and its articulation of the UK's need for a better integrated future work-health system are well-considered. Its proposed reforms to bridge the gap are, however, inadequate. Focusing on this conversion gap, the article highlights the central but neglected role of three Cs (capacity, conditionality, connectivity) urgently needed to come to the aid of the Green Paper vision if it is to realise its potential.
