Triangulate’s latest employer meeting focused on the topic of ‘fit notes’, the replacement for the long-established sick note. We were lucky enough to have two speakers, Dr Greg Warner, from Nightingale Surgery and Charlotte Solway, Human Resources Manager from Southern Health Foundation NHS Trust. Greg and Charlotte explained how recovery from some health conditions can be quicker if the individual is able to return to work with some basic support from their employer. The next employer meeting will be held on 27 th February 2012 in the Town Hall.
At the employer meeting, Councillor Mike Curtis presented us with a cheque for £1734.30, a third of the proceeds raised during his mayoral year when Triangulate was one of his nominated charities. This is the first direct funding we’ve received and it will go a long way to delivering support for employers and individuals over the next couple of years.
