  1. Hi all. A long story cut short - over the last few years I have never enjoyed picking up medication from our local Doctors surgery, which is a small branch of a bigger surgery, because of the awful service that you have to put up with - very slow service, pills almost always being mislaid or sometimes not being able to be found with a request to 'come back later'. I finally had enough last September when a I was waiting for over ten minutes for an employee to find my pills when I was in a rush as I had a busy day ahead of me, I phoned the main surgery to question why this was always
  2. Hello I hope you can help - I have someone who is a decent human being but has been put is a difficult situation. Someone else was helping him before but I’ve been called on-board as the other person hasn't got the time. He has been on ESA for a long time, He suffers from severe social anxiety, depression, body image issues and also post-traumatic stress due to many issues; most of which are childhood-related, whereas the traumatic stress (I believe) was relatively recent (5 years ago) due a severe facial injury that required intense facial- reconstr
  3. Hi, on the 13th August I was referred to Ingeus by my JSA Advisor and told to expect a call off them. On the 15th August I had a severe epileptic seizure caused by stress and was given a sicknote for 12 weeks by my doctor. He thinks, due to me being severely depressed and prone to more seizures, that I should be on ESA. I closed my claim for JSA on the 17th and opened my claim for ESA on the same day. Later that day I had a letter from Ingeus telling me to attend on the 27th. There were no mentions of sanctions or anything like that, but it caused me to become very agitated. I calle
  4. I haven't been to the doctors for over 30 years so I am not sure what the procedure is any more and I have multiple issues I need addressing that require me to bite the bullet and make an appointment. I need the doctor to confirm in writing I have 1, colour blindness 2, fear of heights 3, motion sickness over long distances I am not sure how apart from colour blindness he would be able to diagnose the other problems, will the doctor just deal with all 3 in a single session and accept my word , will he even entertain such a request, would there be a charge if I am in receipt of
  5. Bailiffs lock doctors out of Coombswood Surgery in Halesowen Mohammed Waqas, of Evergreen Pharmacist opposite on the Coombs Road surgery, said: "The staff turned up for work but could not get in as the locks had been changed. He added: "We are disappointed that the patient experience has been affected in this way, as are the practice, but we are assured that they are working hard to maintain patient services from their other sites." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-36434956
  6. All they think about is themselves not me and you, they don't really care that you are in severe pain or need a life saving operation. They whinge they are doing too many hours and when the hours are cut they whinge they are losing pay. Join the real world, you can't have it both ways. How many will die in the next strike which will see the withdrawal of emergency cover as well. Proof there that they just don't care.
  7. Hi all,hope someone can give some advice on this. Here's a brief history,I had a subacromial decompression operation back in Dec.2014,I returned to work in Feb.2015,by this time they had introduced a night shift on a rota of 1 in 9 weeks aswell as the 6/2,2/10 shift.I managed to do 2 night shifts in 2015,by the end of 2015 my shoulders have gotten worse and sleeping has become more difficult,averaging 5/6hrs of interrupted sleep each night. This year they have increased the night shift rota to 1 in 5 weeks,I did my first one at the beginning of January where i averaged 3hrs sleep per
  8. So did they take the 'hippocratic oath' or the 'hypocrite'. Seems it's not a vocation any longer but a job for lets see how much money we can squeeze out of the NHS and sod the sick.
  9. I have just had a return to work interview where I was off sick for 9 days in total. I have been told by my manager that due to company procedure that due to me being off sick on more than 3 occasions in a 12 month period they will not be paying me the days I was off sick. Their company procedure states that: "The Company reserves the right to limit the number of absences in any 12 month rolling period to a total of 3 periods of absence. At this time the Company will review the application of the sickness scheme and reserves the right to withdraw the entitlement to OSP at any time
  10. Hello to all, I am the father of a fifteen year old autistic boy who had to recenlty attend a meeting with a "relatively" new doctor to our son (so far two visits) who frankly I feel has overstepped her boundaries and deserves putting back in her place. Some background my son was finally diagnosed at 13, some nine years after my wife and I raised our concerns but has been stated since he was four, due to a lack of diagnosis it has been one long and constant battle to get him any help and support from either his school or the NHS & my wife and I are worn out. My son only eat
  11. I signed up for a gym with a 3 year contract (dumb I know!). I had a back problem and was hoping this gym could help me as they 'claimed' they had a therapy pool. Ive been unhappy with the gym, equipment out of order for long periods of time, its smells unsanitised and the pool is definitely not as warm as it used to be. Since then, my back problem has progressed and Im now having problems with my leg and foot which is making walking painful. Im seeing a physio, podiatrist etc.. and during a chat with my doctor, he said he would be happy to provide a letter to cance
  12. Hi everyone My friends Mother has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and is going into a care home as her condition is quite bad.

  13. So at my workplace as with many others we have strict trigger points for non attendance and absence. Which rightly I appreciate as it's to ensure employees aren't going sick for a hangover or to go to a do or whatever. But nowhere is there any lenience for an employee who has genuinely been ill. Since I began working at my workplace I have had a lot of sickness(Possibly brought on by work in the 16 months) all backed up with medication and antibiotics I had proven I'd been given and in 2 cases now a doctors unfit to work form. Yet my employer doesn't see this as a reason to be off... I even ha
  14. I have been rather ill recently. I am already disabled with a broken back, but I was diagnosed with cancer last year and had surgery to remove the tumor. I had to go back again this March to have some more surgery to finish things off. I have been unable to work for some time, and the little money I have coming in does not cover the bills as such. I wrote to my creditors and asked them to write the debts off as there was no prospect of paying them. I have received a letter from one credit card this week. A nice enough letter, but it asks me for a doctors letter to confirm my illness
