Hi Tim and welcome. I hope you find the site/community useful and a supportive/inspirational oasis of calm in a world of madness.

Are you with the NHS and If you feel comfortable answering, how would you rate them in their provision of support?

I am currently 50% in university and 50% in Hospital (NHS)
Some of the hospital seems quite supportive but others seem like they don't really care.
I am lucky as I am still at Uni that the uni provides support whilst at the hospital.

I know that a number of yrs ago now the RCN produced a booklet about supporting employees with Dyslexia Dyspraxia.
I think it also often comes down to how patient and supportive your manager and colleagues are.

I never knew about that. After looking At RCN website I have found it pass review date but might be very very useful.

I actually have now read the booklet what is now classed as past review date. I have contacted the RCN about it and they said they are not going to update is unfounatlty as they don't see a need for the booklet as advice can be gain elsewhere what made me feel a bit annoyed as they are the union to support nurses,

You could ask them where to access the new updated advice. I live close to an NHS trust in Gloucester and believe your Occ Health are called Working Well? May be worthwhile seeing what they might offer?
