Re-Deployment Confirmed

So following (many) Occ Health appointments and Specialist appointments, I have been categorised as unfit to return to my substantive post at work (As Lead Safety Manager) this is due to the deterioration of decision making and fatigue linked to MS (PPMS). Meaning that I have been placed on the redeployment list (3 months)

Must say work have been so supportive and I have options, which is good, and protection (wages) too, so all being well will get a role that has less stress and pressure….

so as one door shuts another opens…….

Hello @r-f-j. I hope that all works out for you. It sounds a bit scary to be moving from something familiar into unknown territory, but it’s good to know that you feel well supported by your employer. Good luck with whatever comes next!

Hello @r-f-j and welcome to Shift! Sounds like your workplace have supported you, although I guess it’s a tough stage to arrive at. Over the last year I have reduced my working life; less money, but a way better quality of life. And lucky you, still being able to run! My younger sister has PPMS and just started Ocrevus this year. In fact, lots of folk on here are on Ocrevus. I hope you enjoy whatever the open door leads you to….. 🙂

@r-f-j Well done. Hope that works out. What industry are you in? I had to have lots of reasonable adjustments in my job although had to get them the hard way (had to get legal). Redeployment not really available to me as too specialised now (bridge engineer) but as long as things don’t get worse, should be ok

With PPMS and LTD company contractor (my own company consisting of me) I carried out work for a company who decided I couldn’t go offshore for them so they finished my contact 2weeks after telling them of my diagnosis. I then went offshore with some one else but I wouldn’t want to sit next to me on a chopper! As I worked for myself all other companies that I co ntrated to didn’t have to provide assistance so you sound like you are being treated well.

Good luck finding something that works for you. I’m currently experimenting with different reduced hour working patterns to figure out what works to help manage my fatigue, im also lucky to have a supportive employer who will pretty much let me set what days/hours I want to work while I figure it out.
