Doctor's Appointments and Work
I'm about the start seeing a doctor regularly for appointments once a week, for around 10-16 weeks. I've arrange the appointments to be early morning, so I'll only have an hour off from work, but I'm just wondering if anyone has had a situation like this before and how employers view it? Will I have to explain to my boss what it's for? As with one off doctors appointments you can usually get away with not mentioning the reason, out of privacy. I work in an office, and I will offer to make the missed hour up by perhaps staying later another day in the week. I'm just slightly worried because its for mental health problems, and it may worry my employer as we've only recently had another member off staff off on long term sick leave for the same problem. I've been battling it for years though, and it really doesn't affect my work at all. Anyone else been in a similar situation, or know if there's some kinda policy on this kinda thing?
