well my two-penneth worth is also along the lines of frustration!
A recent case has been an individual off sick for over 4 months, whilst under
various consultants. We have finally had reports back and there's no
underlying medical condition.
Here's the rub!
A letter stating the results and conclusion was sent to the GP 2 months ago,
yet notes have still been issued, and the individual remains 'off sick' as I type
We could go down the route of challenging the GP, but this would increase
I have given the OH position and it's now down to HR.
I always look on the positive side, but even I have to admit I can't see this
changing, regardless of the Black Report. It's such a pity the trial to have OH
professionals issue sick notes wasn't supported and consequently failed.
