I was asked this morning by my direct line manager what I was going to the hospital for, i started woth the line you really dont listen to me do you? His response was it's been a while and I've forgotten. I explained exactly what happens on my check up appointment and told him to remember I'm overdue another kidney biopsy (should've had it in December) and I've been told I'll get it this month. I said also you better hope I don't get it this month as we're very busy and they'd be in the proverbial without me, his response was well if they offer you it on a Tuesday can you put it off for a bit when it's more convenient as he apparently knows how hospitals work and they can do this. My next part is untypable as it wasn't pleasing what I told him. Yeh, sure the hospital will postpone a biopsy to check my kidney function and to see if there's any improvement just so my boss doesn't have to get off his lazy backside. Still raging now and that happened hours ago.

As HazelW has very kindly suggested, we do have a couple of employment booklets, including one aimed at employers. You can take a look/download them on our website at lupusuk.org.uk/working-with.... If you think it might be helpful to give one to your manager then I'd be happy to post a copy to you. Just send me a private message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address.
