Hi. Well went to see occy health doctor this morning which I must admit is not a pleasant experience as it's made me realise I truly am unable to continue working and doubt I ever will. I'm 5 years away from state pension since government changed the dates. I have free bus pass. Free med and free eye and dental check up because I looked upon as a pensioner but cannot get my state pension till i 66 yrs. Occy health doc was amazed I was still working and told me to go gp tomorrow and get signed off work. I work within the NHS and he had concerns for patient safety because of my health and also the fact I taking and function quite well on tramadol. It's a controlled drug that's locked away on the ward yet I got my own packet in my bag. He told me that he getting in touch with consultants and gp to inform them that he recommends medical retirement. Gotta get in touch with my NHS pension as the main decision of retirement is down to them.
Not sure how long the process takes though the way occy health doctor was talking I don't think it takes that long.
I thought he would have examined me but it was just questions about how my health effects my working day.
Will let you all no when I hear any more news.
Stay warm cos it's very cold today.
