Hi there. Hope someone can answer this one quickly as rather worried. I told my Head that I have to attend 2 medical appointments in London ( 150 miles from where I live). I have just received an email from the Head to say that I will have to request these days as unpaid leave. I have had to attend other medical appointments over the last 5 years occasionally and have never been asked to take these as unpaid leave. In the meeting when i told my Head about the appointments I said I was happy to make the time up, something that I can do as I am only part time and only work 3 hrs on those days anyway. Is this really right? Do I have to take a medical appointment as unpaid leave? I tried to get them on my day off but the specialist is only in London on Mondays otherwise they are 400 miles away from me. help very worried.
