My brain injury rehab unit appointment has come though and the talk from HR to my manager has clearly highlighted that this isn't small stuff as the minute I told him fyi I need to take some time off he pointed me to a part of our intranet called:
Take time off for medical appointments
What to do if you need regular treatment or time off relating to a disability or long term health issue.
If you’re disabled and need time off for treatment, rehabilitation or assessment, this will not count as sickness absence. Your manager will record this as authorised absence on your timesheets.
You’re disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.
You won’t need self-certificates or fit notes but you must give your manager evidence of appointments."
So I scanned the letter and sent it to him as evidence and next week I have my occupation health appointment as well.
And if they don't go into appalling shock on how I have been treated over the past year I will be far from impressed
On a unhappier note my boiler has broken for like the 4th time but luckily my uncle has told me that my mum is in Spain for a few days so I can pop round and have a bath as I am sweating due to this heat and having hot skin making sleeping very disgusting and disturbed.
