I've just signed up and looking for some advice and help. I've been teaching for 17 years now (I know some may say risky with schools being a pool full of germs but it's all I've ever wanted to do and as my specialist at RBH said if it's something I enjoy and can cope then the choice is mine)
I was relatively fine for most of the years apart of the obvious frequent infections during winter months.
But the last two years my role as changed dramatically. I've been registered disabled and my employer has provided me with plenty of reasonable adjustments but even with this now I still fall ill and need time of work (nature of the beast).
I've seen Occ health over the years and changed work role to try and keep me working but at the end of the day the children are getting affected by my absence and it's a strain on my colleagues.
What I wanted to know is if anyone with PCD taken ill health retirement and is it something I would be entitled to- even though it's not something I want to resort to but might not have the choice as I physically can't teach.
I look forward to your replies and advice.
