I fractured my ankle several months ago and have been absent from work during this time. I’ve had monthly HR welfare meetings / calls during this time.
In the last call, an Occupational Therapy assessment was mentioned and whether I’d agree to have a call.
My hospital had an occupational therapist who basically got me home with a bed downstairs etc.
However I’m wondering what this assessment via HR will involve.
The HR lady did mention it would determine when I would be able to come back to work.
But without access to my medical records I’m not sure how that’s possible.
My main problem at the moment is coping with pain and physiotherapy exercises, which I need to do to get my mobility back.
I can’t help but think that an OT assessment is designed to force me into something.
