NHS England clarifies rules on practice reimbursement for GP sick leave


We, have just had to argue with nhs England over the same issue thought I was helping both the practice workload and my own return to work by doing some work under monitoring then told the reimbursement we were claiming wasn’t valid as I was doing some work not totally incapacitated. More importantly ,this same restriction is applied by sickness insurance policies and that can’t be argued with,so if off sick long enough to need to claim they can not count partial absence periods so I came within a hair of being financially scuppered by actually doing some work rather than no work while unwell!
