I have been diagnosed with a auto immune disease it causes pain all over .Iam also taking strong medicine .I struggle on the round with pain and exhaustion.Royal mail have issued a stage one for bouts of illness I took because of illness , I am now under pressure to come in sick.They (RM)say they have done a referral to occupational health but OH have rejected a consultation for my case because "I am coping on my round"
the rep has confirmed this to me and he now thinks there is not much he can do .Grievance was raised but the Dom has Cancelled it saying it's non applicable .Any thoughts of were I should go from here.?

Speak to your area rep as your office one isn't doing his or her job.

Which one, you may be covered under the equality act which will be a whole new ball game in your favour!https://www.healthline.com/health/autoi ... e-diseases

Yes it is Rhumatoid Arthritis.I have given two letters to my Dom .First they said they had done a referal but OH knocked it back because they needed to wait till I had been on meds for a while .The second referal was apparently done
last week but they said OH had again rejected it because it wasn't affecting me on the round .I have at no stage spoke to a OH adviser. Nobody knows when a flare could occur but the pains in my feet are quite bad because of all the walking.How does my Dom know if this is exacerbating my condition the specialist say it could be which was mentioned in the letter surely they need to get a OH opinion.Iam at a total loss to what to do .Thanks for your replys
