DLA to re-defend mental health case following EAT decision
How can her lawyer say that a GP note should be sufficient proof of depression when the law (not their professional ethics) allows GPs to be vague in their diagnosis if they believe it will protect their patient from dodgy employers?
After many years in HR, and tribunals involving medical cases, I would not trust anything a GP put on a sick note.
GPs are just general practitioners and do not specialise, so if you want to cover your back you need to get an expert opinion from a consultant in the area concerned; it will cost but not half as much as getting it wrong at tribunal!
