Thanks for your patience. This could amount to negligent behaviour on your employer's part because if they knew that there was something wrong with you which required urgent attention but they did not do what a reasonable employer would have done, they could be held to have acted negligently. In these circumstances you could pursue them for compensation for any personal injuries suffered as a result of this. The issue here is that you have to be able to identify that the injuries you suffered were as a result of the employer's negligence. If for example the cysts would have ruptured anyway and caused you the same damage and pain, whether the employer had acted any better than they did, then attributing the injuries to them will be rather difficult. So this is one option - a personal injury claim if you can show that their negligent actions had caused you or worsened your injuries.
The other potential claim would have been for constructive dismissal, where you are forced to resign as a result f a breach of contract by the employer, however you need 2 years' service to d this and also a claim must be submitted within 3 months of you leaving so you are unlikely to meet the criteria to do this. This leaves you wit the first option as the only likely one in the circumstances.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the ways you can take this further if you wanted to make a claim, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
