Back to work meeting with HR

Had my meeting today and though I was dreading it everything went well.

It was all about helping me to return to work and any help time off for appointments etc that I needed.

They are arranging for the occupational health team to visit and see what I need now and in the future.

I am going to do a phased return to work and I can say if I need time off or to alter my shifts etc

I am now looking forward to returning to work as I know that help is at hand, I knew the staff team and my manager would have done all this but to get the company backing has made it so much easier for us all.
