Hi All.....I first applied for my ill health retirement from my nursing job in December with all the necessary documents including full support etc....finally on 19th Feb 15 it was declined on very dubious grounds. Basically they miss interpreted information, gave a personal opinion not based on any evidence and picked two symptoms that are well controlled to claim that they aren't fully investigated...honestly it was full of complete nonsense. I was advised to write to OH Assist with as much detail as possible to then wait another 4 weeks to receive a memo stating that I should appeal. I feel as if I've waisted the last 5 weeks when I could be appealing. It's a disgrace the way have handled my case so far...to say I'm stressed out by it is only half the story.....so I've submitted another set of information in the vain hope I'm successful. ...It didn't help that the Occ. Health Manager in my area was down right rude and having not read my case said I was too young at 44 and it's about time I accepted it and got back to work....I'm not sure how she knew that having not read my notes !!
