I have been off work since January this year suffering from depression. My GP has signed me off unfit for work and has been seeing me on a regular basis and updating by sick line as we have gone along. We have been trying various medications to get me back on the straight and narrow.
My salary has been reduced to half pay as per my contract but my employer has been writing to me wanting to arrange an appointment for me to speak to an occupational health nurse via telephone.
Do I have to agree to this?
I don't see how someone who is a stranger can assess me over the telephone and make any sort of diagnosis when my GP is still writing me a line and has a much better understanding.
I'm not sure if it's a requirement that I have to agree to or if I'll be fired if I refuse.
Can anyone advise?
