Social workers come first in stress league

    Front-line social workers have topped the table of the most
    stressed professionals in the UK, according to new research.

    Of 25,000 individuals across 26 professions, social workers were
    the most psychologically stressed, had the third worst level of
    physical health, and the fifth lowest level of job satisfaction.

    The study, carried out by business psychology company Robertson
    Cooper, suggests that the most stressful jobs involved direct
    contact with the public in emotionally intense situations under
    strict professional rules.
