Managing Absence – Our history as the UK’s leading absence management provider

We’ve refined our service over the last 14 years. As a result you get a decade’s worth of options based on our work managing absence with organisations ranging from NHS trusts to blue chip companies.
FirstCare started life in 2004 as Health and Absence Services, and over the last 14 years we’ve changed our name, expanded, adapted and evolved to become the UK authority on absence and its financial impact.
We currently maintain the UK’s largest database on absence, covering 185,000 employees, and we’ve recorded over 14 million absences to date. We also work with organisations such as the Department for Work and Pensions and the Health and Safety Executive to provide insight and improve standards.
