Aviva UK's Dr Suba M: Future health risks in the workforce

Dr Suba M, Aviva UK medical director delivers her spotlight talk on understanding the health risks coming down the line and how employers can better mitigate against the rising costs associated with this.

Dr Suba M spoke at REBA’s Future of Workplace Health & Protection Summit on 6 March 2024 about anticipated health risks and what we can collectively work on to manage and mitigate these risks.

She said: "One in five of our population are living with major illness, and there is a knock-on impact that more working age people have long-term conditions than ever before.

"We still have the societal challenge of widening health inequalities that we have an obligation and a duty to bridge. There is an 18 year healthy life expectancy gap between the most and least deprived parts in England."
