Asthma is coverd by DDA so dont worry over your job but can see you

wont get paid sickpay.

Think when that happens you might be able get social security pay.

Chat with your doc if he can help you.

If OH Get involved down the line they will make sure your work makes

reasonable ajustments to your job for you.

hope it helps a little xxxx
