  1. We have still not heard of the outcome of the stage 3 meeting they held last Monday.....Surely there should be some sort of time frame where they have to let us know what their decision is.....
  2. Hi everyone, I havent posted on this thread for quite some time as you can see! The current situation is my partner is still off work sick! He has been off since beginning of May 2012 - yes that 15mths ago. He's spent a total of 10 wks in hosp during that time and from the most recent inpatient time has was only sent home yesterday. GP has been providing sick certs every 8wks which we have been sending to his employer. A stage 3 sickness was held in his absence yesterday. They told us the date a couple of weeks ago - they were aware when it was booked that he would be in hospi
  3. Thank you everyone for your advice. I will get the email sent later on today. Am in the process of completing forms for benefits - what a minefield they are! Lillebelle - Yes under an awful lot of stress but you stick together through the good times and bad times in my eyes. Its frustrating having him so unwell but he cant help it and when I get low I just have to try and think it wont be like this forever...xx
  4. Thanks I shall draft an email to them now. Does this sound ok..... Dear xxxxx, Since xxxx started to only receive SSP each month he has not received his holiday allowance pay. Ive been advised that as annual leave continues to accrue whilst on sick leave that this should have been paid as normal. Please can you ensure that xxxxx is paid for this at your earliest opportunity"
  5. Hi, Firstly thank you to everyone that has previously given me advice on my OHs problems with his employers etc. Update He is still currently off work sick. Just come out of hospital after been in there for 4 weeks. No idea when he will be able to return to work at this stage. SSP ends end of this month. Have received SSP1 from them. After going through each payslip since SSP started found discrepancies adding up to approx £100 which they have now paid and they apologised for - they had miscalculated working days in each month..... They still want a meeting with him, and even wan
  6. Thank you, thats explained it really well to me! I have so much to deal with at the moment that sometimes I cant see the wood for the trees lol! Thanks again! x
  7. The GP is fine, and we see everything/anything that is going to be sent. My query is about the Independent Medical Assesment which doesnt have the option on the form of seeing a report first. And I cant write to them as we have no idea who/where it will be. I guess all we can do it state it on the form and again at the medical? x
  8. Thanks I have edited that I shall send them an email asking them to confirm they are paying all costs etc. One thing, on the form in the GP report section you have the option of ticking to see the report first before its sent to Axa which we have done before. But in the IMA section there is no option for this, just for the report to be sent directly to Axa. Will it be ok for me to amend this to state that we wish to see the report prior to it being sent? Many thanks again for you excellent advice! x
  9. Hi, Firstly thank you for all the excellent advice you have all given me previously Update on medical situation: OH is still signed off sick. Current sick cert expires in 5 weeks but another will be issued at the end of this time. He has seen a specialist at the epilepsy centre and they feel the best way forward is to admit him for 2-4 weeks to wean him off meds and start new ones. Video him and do new mri's etc. He is on the list to be admitted, currently they are saying it will be Nov/Dec. In the meantime they have issued a schedule for medication which changes every 2 weeks with an i
  10. Hi there, Thank you all for your previous help!!! I have no had a reply from my partners employer......please can you take a look and let me know what (if anything) I can do now?? "Your current sick certificate is due to expire on 22nd August 2012 and states that you are currently unfit for meetings. Once you are able to meet with me, we will look at any reasonable adjustments that we can make to your job in order to support a return to work. You have verbally agreed a further referral to our Occupational Health Advisers and I would request that you agree to an Independent Medi
  11. Hi, Id put in the email about the equality act etc. After a week of hearing nothing, not even an acknowledgement we received this email from them this afternoon "Thank you for your email. I can confirm that we have received today, the second certificate with a photocopy of the first one.

In regard to your other points in your email, I am awaiting advice from HR and will be in touch as soon as I am able. Regards" Am due to pick up the duplicate certs from GP tom
  12. A massive THANK YOU for your advice. That is really helpful. Have drafted an email for him to send and get him to send it to his manager later today and make sure he copies in HR. I shall let you know what happens.....
  13. Hi, Just need some advice and I know someone on here will be able to help....... My partner has epilepsy has been completely controlled for approx 20yrs. Medication has recently stopped agreeing with him and neurologist has changed medication. This has resulted in seizures - both full seizures and absence seizures.

End of 4 weeks, GP issued another sick cert for 4 weeks. I spoke to his manager, his speech is very slurred and
