Hello, I was hoping that someone would be able to offer any advice as I have just been turned down for ill health retirement.
I have been signed off from work since September and the doctor at occupational health has recommended ill health retirement. The reply has come from ATOS saying that there is not enough medical evidence although the doctor has clearly said that I am unfit for work and they have acknowledged that - so I am unsure what they really want! they have asked for reports from the neuro who saw me for 10 minutes several months ago and discharged me from his books as I had bad fatigue but there was no treatment for it, so I am unsure what he will be able to say to help, also he is way until July.
Are there any ex teachers out there who have had to appeal for ill health retirement ?
Do you have any advice on how to succeed on appeal ?
