Had a meeting with OH today as struggling with a very unsupportive manager in the NHS. My manager seems to be trying to make things difficult and puts obstacles in the way of helping me return to work after my 1st period of illness. I swear she's trying to make life hard so I quit and make her life easier! OH we're fab today and have organised a face to face meeting with HR OH myself and my manager to outline some guidelines for allowing me to be at work without affecting my health further. She has also included in her email the fact that lupus is covered by the employment equality act (formerly DDA) and has allayed a lot of my concerns. It's nice to feel someone is on your side. The rest of the people I work with have been so sweet and supportive that it's a shame my manager has to be so unkind. I know a lot of people who work for the NHS are having similar experiences and would appreciate any advice you could share with me about agreements you managed to arrange with your work. Thanks
