Occupational health referral

Discussion in 'Health and wellbeing' started by alexpotter, Jan 9, 2011.

  1. Just wondered if anyone had any info: I have read a few comments on here about referrals to occ health after weeks or months off work. Is it normal for a HT to refer you to occ health after only 8 working days absence? I was signed off for 2 weeks with stress.

    If it is work related stress, then a good idea. If this is why you are stressed I'd talk to your union and see if there is anything that can be done to reduce the stress.
  4. Thank for the advice. I know whats causing the stress and there isnt really anything anyone can do.

    Although counselling won't change your situation it can change how you deal with situations. OH offer short term counselling, so I'd ask for some.
