I had a similar problem with this. I am a teacher and was doing regular part time supply work during school term time. I explained to CA helpline that over the year my pay would average out as under the threshold but they would not accept this way of calculating earnings. They would only accept week...
Thank you to everyone. I did consult the pharmacist next door to the surgery first and then spoke to dad's stoma nurse. I will have another chat with him and see if he does have links with the surgery. That would be a good way of raising a concern without stepping on anyone's toes! It's getting a bi...
Unfortunately no resolution with this issue yet and now another Dr has prescribed iron tablets which dad can't take because he has a stoma. The advice leaflet with this prescription also says do not use with the antibiotic that caused the issue last week. I now feel that I can't query this inappropr...

You are worse than me as I see you were posting at 4 in the morning! Thanks for responding. Just having a sounding board really helps.
Yes dad had his 6 weeks of reablement. I've had my Carer's Assessment and all agencies are happy with what I do. I am not concerned about the things I have to do for dad and am more than happy to do them. I volunteered to change the dressings as from past experience the community nurses are over str...
Thanks again Charles. Glad to hear things are looking positive. May I ask which antibiotics your wife was prescribed? Don't worry if you would rather not say. My dad had Flucloxacillin tablets first which did nothing but then had IV Flucloxacillin in hospital and oral Clindamycin on discharge. These...
Thanks Charles. That's really helpful. I will try to talk to the doctor about how to mitigate side effects. She might be more helpful if she feels we are trying to comply. We are only questioning the strength of antibiotic because dad was only discharged from hospital because the antibiotics were wo...
I totally agree. Dad feels really well and is leading nearly a normal life apart from me helping him to get up and go to bed. If he couldn't mobilise a little, I wouldn't be able to help him. He would be too heavy if I did have to lift him. The OT has shown me how to assist him without hurting mysel...
Thanks for the feedback. Dad can only shuffle very slowly now. He was driving up until 3 years ago. He went into hospital and came out with little mobility and bed sores. I just help him up and am there to support him as he takes a few steps. If he gets irreversible tendon damage from the antibiotic...
Many thanks for advice. I had to ring the surgery to find out about test results and the first Dr I spoke to did say speak to a pharmacist as he wasn't a specialist. O spoke to my local pharmacist who agreed with my need to query and suggested NHS 111. The pharmacist from 111 was lovely and went thr...
