When u are of for a certain period it’s done automatically that they get OH to ring u

In theory they assess your health needs, and advise you and your managers on how best to deal with it (adjusting duties etc)

However in my experience they are worse than useless.

Their job seems to be to force you to work before you're ready. Your experience might be better, hopefully.

As long as it’s not ‘ work related stress’ OH assist cannot force you back to work. Make sure your fit notes do not state ‘ work related stress’ .

Sick note states stress at home , i am feeling a bit better than i was , if i was booked off with a sick note that was more than a month could i come back to work before its finish ? say after a month ? or have i got to go the full distance of the note .would i have to see the doctor again?

You can return to work whenever you want. Does your sick note specify a doctors assessment before you return? Just remember if you are off longer than 10 or 14 days cant remember which its an automatic stage 1 warning. So 2 weeks or 2 months off is the same warning. My advice see the duration of the fit note out dont return until you are 100% ready to.
