Hi, and firstly i apologise if i have signed up on the wrong forum as I am in a bit of worry about what to do about things
I have NHL, MALToma, which I understand is low grade, combined with bad asthma (i use sere tide 250 to keep under control) a history of pneumonia, I am guessing this is why i have had the “letter” ? I don’t know what/which criteria has led me to be in receipt of this letter. I am not having treatment for this incurable cancer at the minute and luckily on a watch and wait…
My employer is far from understanding of my condition in any event.
My current contract (I am salaried) shows I get 8 weeks sick pay (three years of service nearly). Like most people with bills, mortgage I am wondering how do i balance this time.
I work “within” the NHS so technically still meant to be working as a Keyworker.
My employer manages sickness absence in quite a menacing and unsympathetic way and now this issue and having to consider whether i am well enough to work, my 50 hour weeks are exhausting as in any case, and I have things thrown art me , coughed at because of my ID badge etc etc,
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but if anyone knows where i can get some guidance if i get any entitlement , whether being in self-isolation is different to my situation, and what I can do in the meantime to keep the money rolling in
