  1. Hi, I'm a single 33 year old, with fulltime parental responsibility for two children, 6 and 5. I care fulltime to the children and receive Tax credits. However. I have just suffered a serious knee injury and had major reconstructive sugery (72hrs ago) so now I'm bed ridden essentially. My mother who works is currently caring for me and the children. She's experienced serious health issues within the last year so is not able for this role. My reason for posting was in the hope there might be some help out there, physical or financial.
  2. Sorry i should have clarified that. I'm referring to the fact that I physically won't be in a position to look after my children.
  3. Sorry could you clarify what you mean by child support? I am receiving child benefit.
  4. Hi, I'm a lone parent currently receiving income support, housing benefit and child benefit. I've just received a date for ankle surgery and this will leave me on my feet for 6 weeks. Is there any additional support available or will I have to refuse the surgery that I've waited a year to have? Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
  5. Thanks for all the advice. I think having slept on it I'm more inclined to attempt the latter.
  6. Yes I don't want to return to work so I simply need to know if by law do I have to return?
  7. Yes I understand your advice, thank you. Should I resign whilst under investigation, am I obliged to work my notice period?
  8. It may be shortsighted but i'm not interested in finding other work. Can I definitely not resign?
  9. I was never given a company handbook. Don't know of anyone else who has done similar.
  10. Does this not mean I will have a GMC on my file now regardless? To be honest I just want to leave asap now, I'd prefer to not have to return. Should they decide to dismiss me then I won't have to work a notice period?
  11. I was today suspended from my work pending an investigation into gross misconduct. I'm being accused of using company emails unauthorised for the benefit of my sideline business. I don't dispute the allegations. I have been told I'm on full pay until a complete investigation is carried out. The thing is, I've been considering handing in my notice for some time and I now view this as an opportunity to do so however I wanted to get some advice on how best to handle this. Any help or advice would be great. Thanks
