I was diagnosed with servers endo at 30 yrs,suffered the usual pain etc had unsuccessful IVF etc. in 2006 I was diagnosed by my forces Dr as being covered under the DDA. Recenty due to job cuts I had chance to look at my sickness record. It showed that time I had taken off sick to have operations for the endo had not been recognised as being covered under the DDA. This would mean that I could now possibly be in scope for loosing my job. I requested that this situation be put right. I included a copy of the form signed in 06 by the force Dr and details of my endo consultant if the OHU wanted to contact him. I have found out today that the force refute that I an covered under the DDA as now that is old hat and it is the equality act that has taken over in 2010. So am I now not covered even though I have the signed form from 06 and have given my consent for my employer to contact my consultant ? They say it was up to me to produce evidence that I am suffering from endo. I am so angry. Please does anyone know where I can turn to for help on this new law and endo ? I am also in the middle of applying to keep my own job....stressful !
