I only work two days a week, my 12 weeks scan is already on one of those days and the midwife at the doctors only sees patients on the other of those days.

Without giving revealing details about my job its hard to explain, but its in a two day cycle, so I am not use to them if I am only in one day that week.

What are my rights to free time off to attend routine appointments etc?

you are entitled to time off yes.

your employer may well ask why you couldn't have arranged the appointments on your days off seeings as you are at work only 2 out of 7 days. however, you are still entitled to the time off.

for your employer

I think my employer is entitled to ask that, especially as I do only work two days, but unless I can pursuade the doctors to send me to the midwife unit at the hospital I may not have any choice.

I am looking into alternatives (i.e. trying to see if I can do different days at work that week, if the Nursery will swap etc) but just wanted to know the legal position, just in case.
