Letter Requests to Work from Home

Requesting Letters to Work from Home

It is the responsibility of your employer to make an assessment with regards to your health condition/s, role and working environment. Therefore, unfortunately we cannot provide letters from your GP to give to your employer to enable home working.

Currently the advice from the Government is to avoid any unnecessary contact with other people. This is known as ‘social distancing’ which includes working from home, if you can.

If you can’t work from home, your employer should help you find ways to avoid unnecessary contact.

That could be:

  • letting you travel when public transport is less busy
  • not asking you to go to big meetings, or arranging to hold them online
  • finding car parking spaces for more vulnerable employees

Further information for employees and employers can be found here, https://www.acas.org.uk/coronavirus

Therefore, given that the NHS is now under unprecedented pressure, we feel these letters are unnecessary and would urge you to speak with your employer directly to agree reasonable adjustments should you deem these appropriate.

As a result we will not be issuing letters to these requests.

Alternatively you can arrange access to your medical record via the the Birmingham and Solihull NHS App. Click here.  By using the app you will be able to provide your employer with information straight from your record that they can then use when considering your request for working adjustments.
