taking time off to see the clinic (UK) (diabetes down diabetic)
Yep we have one. I was worried about "making waves". maybe a chat with HR would suffice?
ahh, didn't know that. I'm a t2 on meds.
would the dental thing be diabetic-related? or are they only obliged to
let me the time off to see diab doc & clinic?
how much pushing did they have to do? was permission granted grudgingly or happily?
or one that feels obliged to operate within the Act?
I have to admit, the only thing HR knows about my diabetes was that I
was hospitalized at dx for a week in December. I guess they don't start
allowing you the visits until you ask for the allowance.
thanks for your input, I'm feeling a bit happier now (so far have had to
take 4 days off this year because of stuff like seeing the doc and
hospital appointments, and surgery). I thought this was unfair, and
you've clarified it for me.
I'd expect that those 4 days taken are now gone but it would be cool not
to have to take any more out of my annual leave. Aside from the episode
in hospital, I've not had 'sick days' for over 2 years so hopefully they
