Hi MPN family
Can anyone offer advice how the NHS view MPN and sick leave ?
I know it's 6 months full pay then 6 months half pay.
I had two months off in October-December with coccydinia (tailbone pain) I now know related to overactive bone marrow.
Had usual meeting with management who said would get me a special chair to sit on (never transpired) 🙄
I've been off now for 3 weeks with JAK2 positive ET, however im due BMB next week.
Due to the nature of my role I need to be mentally focused to practice my job safely.I feel until I've had BMB with full results that I could not do this.
I'm awaiting a letter from management next week calling me in. It's their policy if your off for 4 weeks they want to see you.
I took union rep with me for my last absence and will be doing same for this one. I feel I should not be worrying about this and concentrating on getting better.
Thanks again everyone ☺
