can she stop me from going to my specialist appointment? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a specialist appointment on the day that I am working, which will take all day as I have to undergo a lot of tests (blood test, scans, ultrasounds, etc). This girl at work said she'd swap the shifts with me, but now she has changed her mind and I've got nobody else to swap with as we are extremely short staffed as everybody is leaving. I didn't realise that, so now that leaves just two people to do absolutely EVERYTHING (3 floors to clean). Apparently I will not be able to go because of this. I cannot change my appointment otherwise I will not be able to get another one until next year (you know how stretched the NHS is!) so I have no idea what to do if she doesn't let me go? I am worried about going in that day for an hour before I go to the appt and I'm worried I may get sacked

    You just have to explain to your Manager that this is a specialist appointment for a health issue and that you can't get it changed. It is their problem to sort out.

    She can't stop you, you can choose to stop yourself by prioritising work over the appointment.

    Yes she can.

    She can lock the OP in the broom closet/ a locker etc until the time of the appointment for banter.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
