Well after yesterday's discussion with my Universal Credit Work Coach, I have got a new Fitnote from my Doctor. I have to admit I find it a bit confusing, I always thought that a fit/sick note was issued if you aren't well enough to work? Don't get me wrong I know that sitting at home is not good for me but I don't really understand how I can look for work if I am not fit? Do I just go for things that I think I could do (I have only ever worked in Education so don't have a clue) If I don't try they will apply sanctions to my Universal Credit which isn't very much to start with! My Education Agency consultant hasn't bothered to contact me since I sent her an email explaining that I had Osteoarthritis of the hips that was the beginning of last week. I want to do something, not just for the money but it is a minefield.
Just wondered if any of you have had experience of how these Fit notes work?
Thank you in advance 😉
