I've had a period of sickness over 2 years but GP has now signed me off to return to work...(got to find a job first)....on his fit note he has written a phased return and ideally 2 half days to begin with.

How do I broach this with future employers?

I am not sure that a phased return is relevent as you dont currently have an employer by the time you find a job you may well be well enough to do full time, if not try a part time job tyo start.

Does your GP know you don't have a job? If so, it's a bit odd he's signed you on as a phased return!

yes he does. He had been providing certificates for DWP who requested them.....I am well enough to start looking for a new job - with reasonable adjustments - ie phased return to work.

IMO you would be very ;ucky to find an employer who would take you on for such a amount of working per week, 2 half days is really very little and i cant realistically see this happening. If an employer is advertising a full time vacancy then thats what he wants now not someone to do a few hours and prehaps full time in the future. Reasonable adjustments are one thing but I dont think that such a small amount of work time is reasonable, prehaps you should look at a part time job if that is all you can do.

yes think I've been very naïve here as perhaps my GP was as well - I had a period of sickness about 5 years ago with the same condition - but I was still employed at that time.....and Occ Health rec this amount of working time to my dept....upon my return - gradually increasing the amount.

I think that if you are well enough to think about a job now you will have to decide if you can start a FT one or if you can only do PT but whatever you choose you will have to do those hours
