The economic downturn has made life in the UK labour market very difficult for a large number of people. This is especially true for those who risk being at its margins even when it is buoyant, including those people of working age with long-term or chronic health conditions.  Spondyloarthropathies (SpA) are a group of inflammatory conditions which frequently affect
younger people who still have many years of working life left. During this time, if they can stay at work, they can earn an income, pay their taxes, and live productive and fulfilling lives both at work and in the wider community. This report examines the effects of SpA conditions on ‘work ability’ and the measures which can be taken to support job retention or return to work among over half a million UK citizens who have these diseases.
