Hi. My name is Dr Rick, I have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today.

We can also chat by hone and skype.

Your employer is not really the medical authority that says if you need to self isolate for your medical conditions......

Your GP would be the one to make that determination.

Does this make sense to you?

There's a company nurse based at work.

I do not know if she has the authority to make that determination......
