According to the Daily Express

THE true cost of Britain’s public sector “sicknote culture” emerged yesterday as a new report revealed that days off work cost taxpayers £3.8billion a year.

A survey also showed that state employees take significantly more days off than their private sector colleagues.

Teachers, health workers and civil servants take an average of almost a fortnight – 9.8 working days – off sick every year.

According to the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development which conducted the research, “stress” was the major cause of long-term absence in the public sector.
