Occupational Health Assessment
I’ve been diagnosed with severe hip OA in my left hip, moderate in my right hip and moderate in my left knee. My GP has said to walk with an aid (I’m now using a crutch outside of work)
I work as a Health Care Assistant with the Scottish NHS. I’m on my feet all day. I’ve been told I cannot use a crutch at work until I’ve had an OH assessment. It’s been nearly six weeks since my line manager has requested this. Does anyone have any idea of how long this might take? I’m really struggling.
