Quote from Kittykeely
It was but nothing like this. However, when I went to CBT they did say that it was work that was doing this to me so if I'm out of work I may feel better but then when I go back I may be in the exact same position. However, I do feel like a more set area that's less acute may help it's just my sickness record that's stopping me currently
Have you been to occupational health? If not I would recommend you go. Also does your trust have an employee well-being team that you could access.
If your a member of the RCN they have a well-being service, give them a call.
The sickness policy is there to support and identify what can be done to help you stay healthy.
As far as sign off for IV meds, I'd agree with your manager, you need to be less stressed at work before taking on additional roles.
Community is challenging, you'll be a lone worker and access to support is limited while your with patients, could I ask what specialty you work in, if your on an acute ward you may find a rehab area more fulfilling, its still busy but in a different way.
