    Hi guys,
    I have my clinic on 12th april and ive had to change a shift with someone (who is more than willing due to childcare). Normally i get all of my appointments out of work hours but there wasnt any available for ages qnd ive had my hba1c today so cant leave it too long. I have an ngs text confirmation but my manager wants a lettet of proof. Isnt the text enough? Thanks

    Have you tried explaining that you only have the text & showing you boss the text? If your boss is demanding a letter, it seems a bit awkward, but it might just be that the system says you have to have a letter and there's a bit of a silly approach to following the system to the letter!

    If it is that awkward & you don't think the text will work, try ringing the hospital/nurse and explaining you need a letter confirming the appointment for work - I would hope they would be happy to provide this.

    Good luck getting it sorted.
