Have you ever felt under pressure to turn up for work when you're sick?

The 'Healthy Working' report, commissioned by Mater Private, shows how diet, exercise and work-life balance affect Irish workers' physical and mental health.

It found that almost nine in ten workers have worked while sick, three in ten against the advice of their GP, while four in ten claim to have suffered from 'burnout' at work.

Mary Morrogh, Consultant General Surgeon and Medical Director of the Mater Private Wellness Programme, joined us for our weekly medical consultation to discuss this further.
