I was diagnosed with bronciactasus 2011. I am 55. Work full time and struggling. Im off work a lot which chest infections and I know that my employer is getting a bit annoyed. I don't look ill. I have been advised by my g and consultant in London to move to a hot climate for winter. I have organised this and having to spend savings to do this. I was going to hand my notice in but I was told that I could get a sick note for this period as i am going on medical advice.
This would mean I could claim ssp. Can anyone tell me my rights and is this possible?
Also I have a critical insurance that covers lung disease. If it's classed as a terminal disease then I think I can claim. Terminal or not? It's never goin to go and I'm struggling to work. Help pls.
