British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has plans to crack down on what he has Britain's "sick note culture". The leader there are too many people in the UK claiming welfare benefits because of mental health issues. He said welfare payments were a drain on the economy, and the number of people not working creating labour shortages. The number of sick notes by doctors has sharply since the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The most common diagnoses being by doctors are related to mental health and behavioural disorders. Sunak said: "We need to the sick note culture, so the default what work you can not what you can't."

Mr Sunak has the need to get people back into employment. He said: "We to be more ambitious about people back to work, and more honest about the risk of over-medicalising the everyday challenges and worries of life." He : "Half of people inactive over the last year depression and anxiety." Opponents of Sunak's plans say his government the current crisis. The mental health charity Mind said: "The truth is that…services at breaking point following years of underinvestment."
