Question on ethics, I'm curious to know your thoughts, all.
I have patients who feel anxious about going to work because of covid 19.
There workplaces have taken all reasonable measures to protect their staff, but some people remain understandably frightened.
They want signing off work for anxiety. They are not wanting medical treatment, as when not at work they are not anxious.
Do you think it's reasonable for them to be signed off work by their doctor?
