Hi Ben
It has been accepted and my final day will be the 9th of October I received my letter today being first day of notice

The fact you are off sick should not aggressive your entitlement to voluntary redundancy. If you have made an application and it had been accepted the employer should now honour it and proceed with the redundancy as normal. If you are served with notice soon it would mean that you may be on sick leave for all or part of the notice period but it should not affect your remaining rights such as getting the redundancy payment you are due. So assume that everything is proceeding as normal. If they try and go back on the agreement you should consider raising a grievance to formally complain about it although I would hope it does not get to that as there is no reason they should go back on it just because you are off on sick leave.
