Or something like that.
I am on longterm sickness from work at the moment and because of this I have to attend Sickness Capability Hearings. The first one was quite informal and we just discussed where I was in my treatment plan and my general well-being. Tomorrow is Stage 2 though and I’m not really sure what to expect; I think by this point they were expecting some progress and a date to aim for returning, but apart from the fact that I am not in hospital my condition is no better. The best I can offer them is the knowledge that I will be starting my new treatment in a couple of weeks; however, there is no guarentee that it will work and even if it does, how long the process will take before I am well enough to work again.
I have been warned that my job could be at risk, although I’m not sure if this is part of the procedure. The fact that I come under the Disability Act probably deters them from ending my contract but I could be wrong. My consultant has reassured me that he will support me in any way possible, for which I am very grateful. I passed on his details but he hasn’t mentioned hearing from them… saying that, they are quite unorganised, I even had to remind them I was due this meeting and now it all feels so rushed. I haven’t even been seen by Occupational Health again, which they requested.
So, I’m just reading through things now to get it all in my head what I need to say; I don’t feel in the position to make any decisions right now but I will just have to deal with things if they decide to make them for me.
