I have family stress I confided in a colleque who spoke to

Customer Question

I have family stress I confided in a colleque who spoke to the boss who sent me to occupational health I had a weeks holiday when I returned another colleque said I did not follow protocol about an incident which I used my professional judgment. The boss spoke to me and sent me for extra 2hour training. I was off sick after that for 4 weeks with stress by then it was family and work related. Returned to work colleques are reporting any mistakes I make to the boss. Even though they were rectified immediately with discussion with colleque who still went to the boss. I am now feeling very threatened and vulnerable at work and have decided to send in sick line. I work in NHS. My contract finishes in 6 weeks am I doing the right thing.
