Hi Nicki

As I understand it, your work should do a H&S Assessment if required to see if changes need to be made in your workplace or work regime. However, they should not be able to use this to discriminate against you.

This site looks very helpful:

It would be best if you got some specialist individual advice. One of the organisation listed at the bottom of the page linked below may be able to help:
