Well ladies mixed feelings this morning went to my GP this morning for results of blood tests and flu jab. Only to be told my neutrophils have dropped from last week to 1.1 my white cells down to 2.6 and my haemoglobin has also reduce. GP said that I was neutrophenic and would not give the flu jab . I work as a homeless officer for The LA so deal with the community from rough sleepers and also with people with substance misuses. GP advised I need to change my job due to constant threat of infection. Nothing new I have been told this by my consultant and have been desperately looking for other employment but to no avail. The long and short of It is I have been signed of work four weeks and another appointment has been made to see my Consultant at the end of the month. I have discussed with works Hr and Union who have advised that my role is at threat due to capability. Looks like redeployment on medical grounds but if they cannot match me to a suitable role In 12 weeks then I will be unemployed. Feeling numb . com at present. Knew it would happen at some point didn't expect it so quickly.
