Confederation of British Industry and insurance group AXA reports that public sector organizations scores over 30% than private sector in making themselves absence.

The chief executive of the Ambulance Service Association, Richard Diment, feels that stress from handling potential traumatic situations may be the reason for a higher absenteeism rate.
