Futher update..better than expected!

Well i returned to work on Tuesday and was greeted with welcome back, how are you feeling.

I spoke to the senior manager explained how i felt and told her of the advice i had been give eg. Finding employment nearer home. She was very supported and said that she would like me to return full-time if i could and we went through a plan of phased return to full-time hours which i am going to discuss with my Gp this week. She said that she would like me to stay in the role but recognised that i had to do what was best for my health. She also said that she would provide me with a reference when needed.

I was very surprised but very grateful. My stress levels havd been greatly reduced.

Thanks for the advice everyone x

Thank you very much. I do try to keep them in the loop so that they are always aware if what is going on.

So glad for you that your employers are being supportive. Please keep us informed of how things go for you.

I work in the front line for the NHS and am returning to work on Thursday ...after 5 months off (still awaiting the final result of MS V FND) and am being offered a phased return too ... Except my department is in special measures due to increased workload v lack of staff !!!! So not that confident of my returning ..... Will let you know how returning to work progresses!
