    You don't explain health issues and employers don't ask. If you have a gap that needs explaining you just say ' period of ill health, not fully resolved' or similar wording that says the minimum and is honest about your current health.

    Employers can't check your medical history (in the UK anyway). Some jobs do require either a medical or completing a medical questionnaire, but it will say on the application paperwork if that's the case.
If you won £30,000, which of these would you spend it on?
