Medically retired but found fit for work
I was dismissed from my job on the grounds of capability. I had been and still off sick.l have had to claim UC. I'v had surgery on one of my legs, a total knee replacement, l'v got to have my other one done at some point in the not to distant future. I do get part dissability pip. For an on-going back problem..I've not yet had my work capability meeting. My surgeon has written a formal letter to my Doctor stating that in his medical opinion l should be medically retired. I have regular fitnotes from my Doctor. My work coach feels that l will be found fit for work. I am 60yrs next year.l really don't know what to do can anybody help. Thank you for your time
