Doctor's note

FOI factoid. BBC staff were healthier in 2014/5.  81,984 days worth of work were lost to absence through sickness, down from 85,068 in 2013/4.

News - the biggest department - lost 35,513 working days. Nations' staff had the longest time away - an average of 6.1 days per employee, compared with a BBC-wide average of 4.1.

Before the Mail starts looking up synonyms for "skivers", 4.1 is below the ONS national average, which stands at 4.4 days per employee.
