  • Good luck summer and I hope it all goes smoothly for you.let us all know how you get on later lots of love xxx

  • Do you have a union where you work? I don't think they can ask you to make up sick leave with annual leave. They sound hopeless and unfeeling. Hope all tests etc go well

  • Ditto to Cathie's sentiments. Good luck with cystoscope. Tilda x

  • Good luck Alison for today.

    I would seek advice from ACAS. They can ask you to take holidays for a phased return at the managers discretion.


  • Great minds think alike Carole, that was exactly the people that I have had in mind all day but could not think of the name. They are a mindful of information and great advice and site.

  • Good luck Alison, thinking of you x

  • Good luck Alison I had a similar suggestion from my manager at a sick meeting when she agreed phased return after a period of 6 months sickness. Fortunately HR manager was also at the meeting and intervened saying that she could not do that as I was entitled to be paid for the hours not worked and I should not be expected to use AL for those hours. I also worked in the NHS. Hope this is helpful.

  • very helpful thank you x

  • Also don't forget that any annual leave that is not taken by the year end when you are off sick should automatically be taken over to the following year. This is all laid down in the rule book, so don't back down. We are all here routing for you.

  • Thank you x

  • I Have to agree.... that's not on, you are of sick!!!! not on Holiday, If only!!, Love Shirley XX
