Arthritis forces Britons out of work

Many people in the UK are finding themselves unable to stay in their job as a result of arthritis, a charity group has stated.

According to Arthritis Care, about 98 per cent of those with the condition find it an obstacle to them remaining in full-time employment.

This means that many over 50s with this health problem could find it severely impacts on their finances as well as their physical wellbeing.

The charity said: "Loss of mobility can mean loss of job, and the isolation, diminished social life and comparative poverty of an existence on benefits."

Arthritis Care added that the condition is the single biggest cause of physical disability in the UK, and that it can have a "huge impact" on people's social and work life.

According to statistics from the charity group, one in five adults in Britain currently suffer from arthritis.
