Planning for your return

Talk to your Occupational Health Service or GP to work out when and how is best for you to return to work. Ask your employer if you can go back on shorter hours or lighter duties at first, while you recover your full strength; consider working from home. Most employers will be happy to accommodate your needs. If you have an HR Department at work, they will be able to advise you regarding sick pay or any other benefit you may be entitled to during your time off. Alternatively, talk directly with your employer. If you work out a plan with your employer to return to work sooner rather than later, always double-check with your GP before you go back to work.


It’ll take you a little while to regain your full confidence when you go back to work. You may be slower than normal at first, so don’t take on too much responsibility too soon. Don’t be too hard on yourself about this – it’s perfectly normal and you’ll start to get back up to speed after a few days.

3 Golden rules for a speedy recovery:

  • Stay active
  • Keep a normal daily routine
  • Keep social contact with people
