to think my sickness record will go against me?

First AIBU please be nice:
I'm going for a permanent job at the place I work at. I love it there and want to stay if I can. I'm going head to head with 2 of my colleagues. 1 doesn't seem to be able to handle the pressure of the job and doesn't get on with the other staff and the other wont go the extra mile. I have worked my backside off at this place and go above and beyond my remit because that's the way I work, Im dedicated to my job and get along brilliantly with the other staff. However I have suffered a lot of ill health over the past 9 months resulting in being admitted to hospital as an emergency last week. I'm on the mend now and have learnt my lesson that I need to look after myself properly.
AIBU to think my employers will not want to risk giving me a permanent job due to my sickness record even though I am probably the most ideal candidate for the job out of the 3 candidates?

Don't worry about your sickness. I agree with Madlizzy, but if it's a large organisation, you may have to go through an occupational health assessment. That's not to discriminate either, that's to make sure your needs are met in the work place. A good employer won't discriminate against chronic illness. Especially if you're the right person for the job.
