Our three year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes about a month ago. We've found the forum very helpful in helping us to learn a lot, so thank you to everybody. Work were very good about just letting me have a few days off without it counting as holiday, when everything first happened. Today we had a one month check and are going in for a morning next week to learn to use a different blood test meter. I just wondered what legal rights (if any) I had to attend these appointments in work time? I'm sure there will be a number of these in the months and years ahead. I'm lucky that my employer is very reasonable, but wanted to understand the formal position before exploring further with them.
