Can I forced to take annual leave to attend hospital

This answer was rated:

Can I be forced to take annual leave to attend hospital appointments or can insist that I am given time off for them

Thank you for your question.
You have no right to take time off for hospital appointments unless you are pregnant or disabled and the appointment relates to that.
Your employer can insist that you take it as holiday or unpaid leave, I'm afraid.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
