i am so worried!Will i not be allowed the job? its at a secondary school so obviously working with kids.i dont want to lose this job before i start it!
Don't panic it will be fine.I had to disclose that I took an overdose as a teen and I was so worried about it.I also recieved a letter asking me to ring them. I did and they were lovely, just asked me when it was, what treatment I recieved and wether I was recieveing any treatment now.I think they just like to know, so that they know iyswim, not because they want to use it to stop you doing the job.
you already have job? How did it come up that you are on ADs?
I had to ring occy health before starting my current job due to an episode of depression in my medical history. They were fine. Just wanted to tell me counselling would be available in new job if I felt I needed it. I'm sure you'll be OK.
Well i had to fill in a health check form, and it asked if i was on any medication. So i had to tell them that i am on ADs.Will they tell the school?thanks for replies btw..
I think you will be fine, i had to fill in an OH form for my new job too, and i had been off work in my old job for a few months and was on AD's, it didnt affect me getting the job.
Its to ensure that they are supporting in any way needed, if theres any ajustments to be made - basically covering their back in a nice way please don't worry!
