Medical appointments

All medical appointments should wherever possible be made outside of work time, however we recognise that this is not always possible. If you need to take work time then you must inform your line manager in good time. Medical appointments will normally be unpaid or, if paid, we will look to you to make up the time.

If you are suffering from a serious on-going medical condition we will meet with you to discuss the best approach in your individual case and we will make reasonable adjustments as appropriate. In the first instance please advise your line manager or, if you prefer, another member of Senior Management.

We may ask you for a confirmation of appointment letter at our discretion.
