I had my OH telephone assessment and the nurse on the phone stated that she doesn't forsee a return to work in my current condition and is sending report to my DOM today. She also stated that i need a phone consultaion woth a doctor because he can only say yes to ill health. But i thought with the nurse saying no return to work can't my DOM make a decision off that??

Cheers.

I just needed to see if anyone is in the same boat, i think ultimately the decision is down to your manager and OH are only there to advise RM.

How can your manager make the decision is he a qualified doctor.

They are right in a certain way. Even if a Doctor advises IHR is the best way to go, it is only advice. RM will make the final decision, but it will probably be someone in HR who has the final say so.

However, it would be unusual for them to go against medical opinions.
