how do you call in Sick?

Post by hanlan » Thu Aug 31, 2017 8:18 am

I am about 3 months in to the job. I have a sickness bug come this morning and are unable to go in. I've been told by other members of staff that you need to phone a sick line. I can't find this. Is it different to all prisons or the same one in general?

Tends to usually be comms in the establishment I've worked in... you won't be able to find the number on the internet maybe just call the prisons general number and ask for the specific number

We just call the Orderly Officer or Comms Room and tell them. They record that in a book and then usually your line manager will call you within a day or two, or unless you fit yourself before then. To fit yourself, just call the same number as you did when calling in sick and tell them when you'll be in again. Fairly simple to do.
If the English language made any sense, a catastrophe would be an apostrophe with fur!
